Hosta 'Kasseler Gold'

A medium size (14 inches high by 42 inches wide) hosta, this cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Semperaurea' which was registered in 2003 by Peter and Jean Ruh of Ohio on behalf of the originator, Heinz Klose of Staudengärtnerei Klose in Germany. The very bright golden yellow foliage is broadly oblong to ovate, moderately wavy with a thin bloom on the bottom. Very pale lavender flowers bloom from mid-June into July.

According to a Google search, "Kasseler is the name given to any pork cut that has been smoked, then ripened in a salt brine solution."
