Hosta 'Prairie Glow'

This is the "gold-leaved mother plant of H. 'Midwest Magic'. It was introduced by Mark Zilis of Illinois and registered by Peter Ruh of Ohio in 2002. The large size mound is 20 inches tall with a width of 45 inches. It bears pale lavender flowers in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...presents the unusual case of the mother plant of a sport being named after the sport. We originally identified 'Midwest Magic' as a sport out of a plant that had been sent to us as 'Zounds', but was not. Once we realized the mistake, we named this gold-leaved plant 'Prairie Glow'."
