Hosta 'Hoosier Homecoming'


The plant pictured was labeled as 'Hoosier Homecoming' but it does not fit the description. We will try to find a true specimen in a garden soon.

Originated by Patricia Scolnik of Breeze Hill Plant Lab in North Carolina and registered on her behalf by Registrar, Kevin Walek in 2009, this cultivar is a tissue culture sport of H. 'Aspen Gold'. One of these plants was distributed to each attendee at the National Convention of The American Hosta Society in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1997.

It is an upright, medium size hosta about 13 inches high by 31 inches wide with golden-yellow foliage that has a white marginal variegation. The broadly ovate leaves are slightly cupped and moderately corrugated. Near white flowers bloom from late June into July.

The registration materials state: "...thought to be the same as H. 'Aspen Gold'. Originator says it is not."

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...leaves gold-centered with a thin, white margin that tends to drawstring in mature clumps;"

The website, states that this may be the same hosta as H. 'Aspen Breeze'.
