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