Hosta 'Spinning Wheel'
 

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...sport of 'Golden Nugget' (Hatfield Gardens 1988 catalog, p. 3); also described as a sport of a gold-leaved sport of 'Wagon Wheels' (Pollock 1987b)."

'Spinning Wheel' was originated by Mildred Seaver of Massachusetts and registered on her behalf by Kevin Walek (Hosta Registrar) in 2009 as a sport of H. 'Golden Nugget'. It has blue-green foliage with a medium to bright yellow medial (center) variegation. The plant becomes a large size hosta about 20 inches high and 50 inches wide with foliage that is nearly round, unruly, slightly cupped (up or down), is heavily corrugated with thick substance. Dense clusters of near white flowers bloom starting from late June into July in Massachusetts.

Mark Zilis (2009) also states that this cultivar, "...tends to burn a bit in spring, but most specimens are problem-free."

 

"Available at Hatfield Gardens at about $200.00. A large, round-leaf, variegated plant of very heavy substance and texture. The deep cupping of the leaves and the dark green edge with yellow and cream center makes this an outstanding specimen. I believe 'Larry Englerth' may be a very similar plant and equally desirable."
