Dr. Jim and
Wilkins of Michigan in 1995, this cultivar is a cross between H. 'Fort
Knox' × H. 'Elatior'.
It forms a large size (28 inches high) mound of wavy, slightly
corrugated foliage with good substance. In July, it produces
pale purple flowers atop 4 to 6 foot tall scapes.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Its semi-upright mound habit and
bright gold color makes 'Spotlight' an ideal specimen plant in
the shade garden. The foliage color intensifies with some direct
sunlight, sometimes lightening to whitish gold. The only
negative is that the scapes tend to droop, but if they become
unsightly, they can be easily removed."
