This grower is sure of this plant identification.
Subtly attractive variety. A sport of Gold Standard, registered in 1977. Basically a flattish gold leaf, but the margin is superb. A clean white edge, such as every man would like to see in his freshly laundered shirts. Between this edge and the main leaf centre is a feint shading of dark green, inherited from the parent variety, which makes a sharp contrast. Less vigorous than Gold Standard, it needs careful positioning in dappled shade or morning sun, to bring out it's true beauty.
Hosta ‘Moonlight’. Fine Hosta with a flattish gold leaf and clean white margin with a sharp edge. A sport of Gold Standard.
All Hostas need some shade and few will thrive in open strong sunlight. A general rule is that the lighter foliage, the brighter the sunlight that will be tolerated. Variegated varieties tend to require more sun to keep their white, light green or gold stripes. The darker, bluer varieties need more shade.
Once established, Hostas are pretty tough and will spread horizontally to make excellent ground cover.
Grown for their decorative foliage. Form large clumps that are excellent for ground cover. Attracts humming birds in suitable geographical locations.
