Hosta 'First Up'

There is an image of this cultivar on the Hosta Library. From the photos, it appears to be a miniature size hosta with yellow foliage that turns green later in the season. This non-registered cultivar was originated by Randy Goodwin of Indiana.


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."
