H. ventricosa
'Purple Flame Forever'
 

This is an open-pollinated seedling of H. ventricosa 'Aureomaculata' that was registered by Mark Zilis of Illinois in 1988. It is a miniature size hosta with yellow gold foliage which maintains its color throughout the season. This cultivar is considered a slow i.e. poor growing hosta.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Out of thousands of H. ventricosa 'Aureomaculata' seeds I germinated in 1985, only one had gold foliage...Unfortunately, I registered it before I had fully assessed it. While it is attractive in small containers, it shows very little vigor in the garden."
