Hosta 'Morning Light'

This medium size (17 inches high by 28 inches wide) hosta with medial variegation was originated by Dutch hybridizers, Gert van Eijk-Bos and Dirk van Erven and was registered in 2001. It is a reversed sport of  H. 'Twilight' which bears pale lavender flowers on 3 foot tall scapes from mid-July into August.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Leaves emerge pale chartreuse with light olive green margins that darken later. Leaf tips are exceptionally long."

An article in The Hosta Journal (2016 Vol. 47 No. 2) states that this also sold under the Tradename or Trademark of H. STEAL THE LIMELIGHT.

Application Date: 2001

Abstract: A new and distinct Hosta plant named ‘Morning Light’, characterized by very thick leaves, deep green margin, and a creamy yellow to creamy white center, that displays a unique upright habit and light lavender flowers held above the foliage on thick cream-colored scapes.
