Hosta 'Harvest Glow'
 

This cultivar is a sport of H. 'Moon Glow' which Walters Gardens, Inc. of Michigan registered it in 1988. It forms a large size (19 inches high) mound of slightly wavy and corrugated foliage with thick substance. From mid-July into August, it bears near white flowers.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...becomes a bright gold mound of foliage that is similar to gold-leaved Tokudamas."

Similar cultivars include H. 'August Moon' and H. 'Golden Bullion'.

 

"Here is a medium-sized hosta which always grabs my eye, and justifiably so. The color is good, rich gold, not chartreuse, when grown in full shade, and smooth-textured leaves have a velvety sheen, adding to its enjoyment. It holds up incredibly well during our very cold, rainy summers as well as persevering through our hot, dry droughts when just about everything else is showing stress and fatigue. Consequently, I would think this one could be grown to perfection in both the southern and northern extremes of hostadom."
