Hosta 'Appletini'

This is a hybrid of a gold colored sport of H. 'Blue Dimples' × H. 'Shining Tot' which was registered by Mark Zilis of Illinois in 2009. It is a small size plant about 6 inches high by 14 inches wide with slightly shiny, bright yellow foliage that turns to light green by mid-summer. The leaves are slightly wavy and have smooth texture. Pale purple flowers bloom in August and reddish bracts subtend the flowers.

From the Field Guide to Hostas by Mark Zilis (2014), "Other cultivars introduced from the same cross include 'Azuretini' (blue), 'Bluetini' (blue), 'Bubbatini' (blue), 'Limetini' (gold in spring, then green), 'Martini' (medium green) and 'Saketini' (oddly colored leaves and closed flowers)."
