Hosta 'Spotlight'

Registered by Dr. Jim and Jill 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.

According to 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."
