Hosta 'Country Melody'
 

A hybrid of ((H. 'Liberty Bell' × (H. 'Urajiro Hachijo' × H. pycnophylla)) x H. 'Ebony Spires') x (((H. 'Sun Power' × OP) x H. 'Golden Sculpture') x H. 'Sea Frolic'), this cultivar was registered by Don Dean of Minnesota in 2013. This is a large size hosta (20 inches high by 52 inches wide) with greenish yellow foliage. Its leaves are broadly ovate, moderately wavy, slightly twisted and slightly shiny on top. Near white, tubular flowers with faint lavender near the base bloom from July into August. It sets viable seeds.

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term urajiro as white-backed or white underside.
