Hosta 'Early Riser'

Originated by Ran Lydell of Cooks Nursery and Eagle Bay Gardens in New York, this non-registered cultivar is of unidentified parentage. It is a medium size hosta about 16 inches high by 40 inches wide with green leaves that have a narrow yellow to creamy white marginal variegation. The leaves are narrowly ovate, moderately wavy and have a thin underside bloom. Pale purple flowers bloom from mid-July into August on scapes about 24 inches tall.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "This cultivar probably will become larger than my listed dimensions."

There is also a cultivar named H.  'Early to Rise'.
