English Sunrise

Hosta "English Sunrise" review

This is the all gold form of'June' and is essentially identical except that it does not have the blue border. Because it retains the glaucous bloom on the leaf it is, I think, one of the nicest golds I have seen, especially in the spring. Like 'June', I would expect the color to be very dependent on the light level and season. Sport of 'June' found several years ago at our nursery (Q&Z) that becomes a medium-sized mound of gold foliage; striking when combined with 'June' and 'Halcyon' in group plantings. An all gold sport of Hosta 'June',leaves of good substance are a bright gold early in the season and soften to a medium green by midsummer. Topped with lavender flowers in July and August
