'Golden Circles'

This sport of H. 'Frances Williams' was originated by Frances Williams of Massachusetts and registered by Peter Ruh of Ohio on her behalf in 1998. The large size clump grows about 24 inches in height with a spread of 50 inches. Its heavily corrugated blue-green foliage has chartreuse to gold colored marginal variegation. The leaves are deeply lobed at the base and have thick substance. Its near white flowers bloom from mid-June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...does not develop spring desiccation burn as much as 'Frances Williams' making it a better choice."

An article titled Too Many Lookalikes by Bob Keller in The Hosta Journal (2010 Vol. 41 No. 2) states that, "There are many registered 'Frances Williams' lookalikes including H. 'Aurora Borealis', H. 'Squash Edge', 'Holly's Green and Gold', 'Golden Circles' and 'Olive Bailey Langdon', as well as some unregistered ones."
