This 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
but not registered until 2004.
The Hosta Handbook by
Mark Zilis (2000), states that this cultivar "...is a
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."
