Hosta 'Five O'Clock Shadow'

A sport of H. 'High Noon', this cultivar was registered by Bob Solberg of Green Hills Farms in North Carolina in 2000. It forms a large size (22 inches high by 36 inches wide) mound of blue-centered, chartreuse margined foliage. The leaves are slightly folded, slightly convex and broadly ovate in shape. Pale lavender flowers appear from late June into July followed by viable seeds.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Moderate growth rate. Very muted margin can attain a width of 1 in. (2 cm)."
