In 1999, the
Hosta Society registered this cultivar which was originated by
Russ O'Harra of Iowa. The
parentage is unknown for this large size mound of bright gold foliage
that stands 2 feet tall and 50 inches wide. The leaves have
deeply lobed bases, dull on top and have distinct tips. They are moderately
corrugated and have thick substance. The bell-shape flowers are near white
and bloom in late July.
The Hostapedia by
Mark Zilis (2009), "...the general speculation
pointed to it being a seedling of 'Elatior'."
Similar cultivars include H. 'Golden Gate'.
