Hosta 'High Noon'

This upright growing hosta forms a large size (26 inches high by 46 inches wide) mound of bright golden foliage with a semi-upright growth habit. The leaves are broadly oblong-ovate, moderately wavy and heavily corrugated. It was introduced in the 1980s by Mildred Seaver but not registered until 2004.

The Hosta Handbook by Mark Zilis (2000), states that this cultivar "...is a Mildred Seaver introduction and was originally called 'Sea Tail' and 'Sea High Noon'. It made such a sensation at the 1987 American Hosta Society national convention that a plant of 'High Noon' sold for a record-breaking $700 at that year's auction."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas (2009) states: "Site in some morning sun to brighten the color and remove the early season chartreuse...Leaves are more elegantly pointed than most hostas with similar characteristics."
