Hosta 'Moonlight'

This sport of Hosta 'Gold Standard' was registered by Pauline Banyaii in 1977. It forms a large sized (20 inches high) plant with leaf color that change during the season. The foliage is slightly corrugated, generally flat and of average substance. It bears pale lavender flowers in late July into August but does not form seed pods. This is a 'Fortunei' type hosta.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...has all of the positive traits of 'Gold Standard' (rapid growth rate, dense mound habit, season-long interest, etc.) but with a white, instead of green, margin."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Fire Opal', H. 'Patriot's Fire', H. 'Richland Golds Moonlight' and H. 'White Lightning'.

Sports include H. 'Lunacy'.
