Hosta 'Early to Rise'

This cultivar of unidentified parentage was registered by Randy Goodwin of Indiana in 2006. A small size plant, this hosta has bright gold colored foliage in the spring that changes to a green shade later in the season. The leaves are wavy and have smooth texture. Lavender flowers bloom from mid-August into September.

There is also a cultivar named H.  'Early Riser'.

An article by Warren I. Pollock in The Hosta Journal (2010 Vol. 41 No. 1) states that the hosta H. 'Early to Rise' which was registered by Randy Goodwin in 2006 was originally called 'First Up'." However, 'First Up' is not acceptable under the International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants...could be considered as exaggerating the merits of the plant."
