Hosta 'Summer Gold'

Originated by Steven Hamblin and registered by Peter Ruh of Ohio in 1999, this is a cultivar of unidentified parentage. The mound grows to 14 inches high and 38 inches wide with broadly ovate, moderately corrugated foliage of thick substance. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July into August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "This rare Frances Williams of Massachusetts introduction has the look of a H. 'Sieboldiana' type, yet is much smaller...Eunice V. Fisher wrote that it turns green later in the year (Fisher 1979)."

"Plant is a viridescent yellow form that is smaller than the species. Turns all-green." Schmid (1991) cites Elizabeth Nesmith of Fairmount Gardens in Massachusetts and L. Phillips of Massachusetts as co-originators with Hamblin.
