Ed Schulz of Iowa registered this seedling of H. 'Tequila Sunrise' in 2015 and re-registered with new data in 2018. The large size (20 inches high by 38 inches wide) hosta has yellow to light green foliage which is lightly twisted, moderately wavy and dull on top. Its petioles have purple coloration which extends up into the leaf blade. Pale lavender, tubular flowers bloom from August into September followed by viable seeds.
