Name for this new hosta?

donrawson(Z 5)June 17, 2014

I need a name for this hosta seedling. It emerges very bright chartreuse in the spring and stays all summer. Very rugose and good substance. Right now it is a medium-sized plant, but I do not know what the mature size will be. Can you suggest a name for it?

Hammered Gold?

Any idea what the parents are? Often the name reflects one or both.

Remember, the "rule" about some kind of connection naming is about sports, not seedlings. Well, that's the way I understand it.

I know it's not necessary to keep the "sister" part of its parentage, but if you did...

And wanted to keep the "gold" part as well...

And then threw a Spanish flavor on it...

Atocha= there is one named Nuestra Senora de la Atocha already but I like the name...far reach for connecting it to Don
Golden Goose= already one named Rosedale Golden Goose
Crinkles=already used. Not such a tough sounding name.

Rhino Gold is a super recognizable name linked to Don if not to the heavy duty Rhino Hide.

Yellow Crocodile (we also need more "Y" in the alphabet)
Zulu Queen.....this is one I really like.
ZULU QUEEN ZULU QUEEN

She = this after the queen in Rider Haggard's book SHE. (or "She Who Must Be Obeyed") which is well known in England.
In fact, Rumpole of the Bailey TV show called his wife Hazel SHE Who Must Be Obeyed. And I have now (and had before) a coffee cup with that title on it. (First one my crew threw it overboard).The Queen's REAL name was AISHA.
Only problem, we don't need no more ....... SSSSSSSSS.

==>>> listen oh master of lists.. dont you think the 6 or 7 hundred named hosta.. with gold or golden in the first part of the name is enough???

you can do much better than any of these ...

dazzler is a benedict word...

i swear there is a medal plant.. medal of honor ..

jewel ... already one gold that i hate with that name.. ruined enough JOTNiles for me

isnt golden sunshine a historical name for a yellow sieboldiana/tokuda???

june fever.. so dont go there ...

how about crinkly old bat turd ... [darn GW spell check.. lol]

it reminds me of indiana bobs crinkly thing way back when.. but i am blanking on it .... yankee doodle dandy ... but that one was streaked... he tried giving me a piece.. it went yellow.. then passed away ... pisser ... see link ... i thought the yellow version was something to do with city of angels.. but i dont find that in the library ....

you dont know its heritage at all???? for the pun game????

ya know.. it looks like a slime mold...

Poor Free Cuba, so many dreams gone, such a paradise but without a single hosta.

Celebration of Angels is a real halo above the gold hosta. An aura.

But Gold Fever still is simple, straight-forward, sliding easily between all the hoo-hah names and NAILING IT.

Streets of Gold
Sunny Side Up

My favorite name is Pucker Up, as I think it suits the hosta the best. Lemon Pucker, also great, and so is Sunny Side Up, as it immediately lets one know that the leaves are upward.

I also agree that there are too many names with the word "Gold",....while helpful in knowing the plant color, it also makes it difficult to remember the name, because of the bazillion hostas that start/end with Gold.

After studying the photo and your hosta's unique color, I think the word Pistachio in the title could be helpful: Pistachio Puck, Pistachio Pucker, Pistachio Crumble, Pistachio Pie...

Let us know what you choose! It took me 6 months to come up a name for my business...

Top three: Lemon Pucker, Limeade (it does have lemon and lime colours) and Pucker Up.

A slight variation of Limeade could also be Limonade???

For some reason, I keep thinking this hosta's future name should consist of two words. ...

Don: getting any closer to a " like"?

Just an FYI, Streets of Gold is taken. I have one.

So did you settle on Hammered Gold after all, Don?

Very nice (very cheery!), if you haven't chosen one, how about 'Repoussé Gold'?

Repoussé is a fun metalsmithing technique.

I like Kate's earlier suggestion of Gator Gold since it fits the look of it perfectly. The alliteration works well too.

That's funny...I had no clue there was a hosta named "Alliteration," so I wasn't very clear. I meant that the alliteration in "Gator Gold" (both words starting with "G") worked well in terms of sounding good.

I think it's a distinctive name that describes it well.

I didn't read everyone of those posts. So someone may have already suggested it. How about Gator Hide. It might be too close to Rhino HIde, or it might not be.

There is an Alligator HIde listed, but it's not in the Hosta Library or the Hosta Finder. It must not be in distribution. It was registered by Kruer in 2009.

I think it needs a "tough" name. It looks like alligator hide or something like that. You don't want to give some "cute" name.

I like Pucker Up too, but I think it is taken---at least according to The Hostapedia.

Gold Pucker

I like your suggestion of Hammered Gold, Don.

Buttered Popcorn is the name of the daylilies that are planted by the interstate highways. I vote for Hammered Gold.
