Registered by Mark Zilis of Illinois in 2010, this cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Ogon Tachi' × H. 'English Sunrise'.
It is a medium size hosta that grows to around 14 inches
in height with a spread of about 29 inches. The golden
yellow foliage is ovate, slightly wavy and slightly shiny
on top. Tubular flowers bloom from mid-July into August
on scapes up to 30 inches tall.
Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled,
A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term ogon or oogon
as gold or yellow and the term tachi as upright, 'Tachi Gibōshi' or
chromosphere is a reddish gaseous layer immediately above the
photosphere of the sun or another star. Together with the
corona, it constitutes the star's outer atmosphere.
