Hosta 'Five O'Clock Somewhere'
 

This sport of H. 'Five O'Clock Shadow' was registered by Bob Solberg of Green Hill Farm in North Carolina in 2004. The plant forms a large size (20 inches high by 32 inches wide) mound with pale lavender flowers that appear from late June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...impressed with its very wide margin...Bob noted that 'Five O'Clock Somewhere' might be polyploid."



An article by Warren I. Pollock in The Hosta Journal (2006 Vol. 37 No. 1) quotes Bob Solberg saying, "H. 'Five O'clock Somewhere' comes from H. 'Five O'clock Shadow'. The Jimmy Buffet and Alan Jackson song, It's Five O'clock Somewhere was a huge hit when I was seeking a name for this sport."
