Descriptions (from various sources):
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 flowers scapes that are heavily speckled purple.
The purple flower buds that open pinkish-lavender and the accompanying purple-tinged vestigial leaves are a nice color contrast to the bright gold foliage.
