This cultivar is a sport of H. 'Midwest Gold' which was originated by
Alex Summers of Delaware and registered by
Peter Ruh of Ohio in 2003. The plant has gold colored
foliage with a green marginal variegation. It grows into a
medium size hosta about 15
inches high with a spread of 32 inches. The near white flowers
bloom from mid-June into July.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...has a wider green border than 'Buggy Wheels', another
green-edged sport of 'Midwest Gold'. The gold center can develop
spring desiccation burn."
An article by Alex
Hosta Journal (1997 Vol. 28 No. 2) states that,
"...'Green Eclipse' and 'Green Rim Nugget' are the same plant. The name was
changed to 'Green Eclipse' when the "Code" frowned on names with more than
words a number of years ago."
