Hosta 'Green Platter'
 

This cultivar was developed by Eunice V. Fisher of Wisconsin and was registered on her behalf by Peter Ruh of Ohio in 1997. A seedling of H. 'Golden Anniversary', it develops a giant size (32 inches high) mound of round, sometimes cupped or corrugated, green leaves. Pale lavender flowers appear in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...is another historical hosta, being developed in the early 1960s by Eunice V. Fisher. It makes an attractive, space eating ground cover and has the interesting characteristic of emerging with very light green foliage, then quickly turning dark green."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Golden Anniversary', H. 'Oxheart' and H. 'Pale Gold'.
