Permagold hosta and the name was used for H. 'Semperaurea'.
An article about H. 'Semperaurea' by W. George Schmid in
Hosta Journal (1985 Vol. 16) states that, "Through the
kind cooperation of Mrs.
Ursula Syre-Herz of Coastal Gardens and Nursery in
Myrtle Beach, SC, I was able to obtain all of the pertinent information from
Foerster's books in her
possession. All of the Books mention 'Dauergoldfunkie',
the German name for H. '
Semperaurea'...Foerster's books were
published before 1959, and thus the
Latin cultivar name 'Semperaurea' is
permissible under the Cultivated Code."
