Hosta 'Pot of Gold' is an all gold sport of Hosta 'Rainbow's End', which in turn is a sport of Hosta 'Obsession'. The narrow, glossy golden leaves form an attractive small 15" wide clump, topped in mid-July with 18" tall flower scapes that are heavily speckled purple...a hummingbird favorite. The purple flower buds opening pinkish-lavender and accompanying purple-tinged vestigial leaves are a nice color contrast to the bright gold foliage.
