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 " 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."
