A sport of H. 'Paul's Glory',
this non-registered cultivar by Tom Goad
of Ohio grows
into a large size hosta about 22 inches in
height and 55 inches in width. It has broadly ovate to oblong
ovate, wavy and moderately corrugated foliage. The pale lavender
flowers bloom starting in mid-July.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...differs significantly from
'Paul's Glory' by its much wider margin. Differences, however,
from 'American Glory Be' and 'Lakeside Shore Master' are negligible."
Similar cultivars include H. 'American Glory Be', H. 'Lakeside Shore Master', H. 'Paradise Glory' and H. 'Pete's Passion'.
An article by
Warren I. Pollack in
Hosta Journal (2020 Vol. 51 No. 1) titled
Doppelgänger Hostas: Fancy Name for
Look-alike Hostas, included a long list of hostas
which various hostaphiles, published articles or other sources have
indicated "look" the same. Some of these are, in fact, the same
plant with two or more different names. Others are hostas that vary
in some minor trait which is not immediately discernable to the
casual observer such as seasonal color variations, bloom traits, ploidy, etc. So, as Warren mentions, hostaphiles may differ as to the
plants listed but then, their opinions are based on visual observations and interpretations.
'Morning Light' is included on two look-alike lists in this
article. Following an algebra rule I learned in the last century, if
A=B and B=C, then A=C so all the hostas on both lists should be
List #1 - H. 'Morning
List #2 - H.
Light', H. 'Paradise
Glory', H. 'Saint Paul' and
STEAL THE LIMELIGHT.
