here is the description I find for this hosta and mine doesn't seem to match.
Large. A large mound of thick-substanced gold foliage; pale lavender flowers in late July. Sport of ‘Three Sisters'. (M. Zilis) ( )

Hmmm.....the large part seems to fit and I do see a bit of gold. :lol:
I don't know what Three Sisters looks like either. I'm going to have to look those two up. :???:
