Hosta 'Golden Fountain'
 

Jim Dishon of Michigan registered this hybrid of H. 'Beatrice' × H. 'Green Fountain' in 1993. The large size (23 inches high) mound has moderately wavy foliage with a thin tip. Purple flowers bloom from mid-August into September.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this plant "...is another cultivar that holds true to its name i.e. being a fountain like mound of gold foliage. It has an excellent rate of growth and would make an ideal plant for the center of an island bed."

The Hosta Journal, (2006 Vol. 37 No. 2), in an article about flower characteristics stated that this cultivar has "...deep reddish-purple flower buds on glaucous scapes..."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Katrina Jo' and H. 'Spritzer'.
