Hosta 'June's Gold'

A sport of H. 'June', this cultivar from Eldren Minks of Minnesota was registered by Peter Ruh of Ohio in 2000. It forms a small size mound of gold colored foliage. Pale lavender flowers bloom from late July into August.


An article by Warren I. Pollack in The Hosta Journal  (2020 Vol. 51 No. 1) titled Doppelgänger Hostas: Fancy Name for Look-alike Hostas, included a long list of hostas which various hostaphiles, published articles or other sources have indicated "look" the same. Some of these are, in fact, the same plant with two or more different names. Others are hostas that vary in some minor trait which is not immediately discernable to the casual observer such as seasonal color variations, bloom traits, ploidy, etc. So, as Warren mentions, hostaphiles may differ as to the plants listed but then, their opinions are based on visual observations and interpretations.
