Hosta 'Boyz Toy'
 

Originated by Alttara Scheer of Connecticut, this non-registered cultivar is of unidentified parentage. It is a miniature size (4 inches high by 16 inches wide) hosta with chartreuse to gold colored foliage. The leaves are ovate and generally smooth textured. Medium purple flowers bloom from late June into July on scapes (and petioles) with purple dots.

The originator made the following comment on the Fraternal Order of Seedy Fellows website: "Named for the Boyz at Naylor Creek, this sassy little plant emerges bright chartreuse with pointy little red leaf tips (it's a mini, so you have to look close, but it's a unique identifiable feature). As the red fades on the tips, the slightly glossy leaves turn bright yellow and in July it sends up brassy scapes in perfect proportion to the clump with ultraviolet flowers in abundance. Leaves have good substance and the compact clump has a vigorous growth rate. Will tolerate more sun than most and colors up best with a few hours of direct sun. Clump will reach 6x12" at maturity. Available from Naylor Creek Nursery "
