Hosta 'Little Miss Sunshine'

Registered by Amy Bergeron of Michigan in 2008, this cultivar is a hybrid of H. 'Regal Rhubarb' × H. 'Ōgon Koba'. It grows into a small size hosta about 10 inches high and spreads to a diameter of 20 inches. The heavily rippled leaves start the season as light green and become bright yellow as the season progresses. The leaves are intensely wavy, ovate with a rounded base. bell-shaped flowers begin to bloom in mid-July.

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term koba as small leaf, 'Koba Gibōshi' or H. sieboldii and the term ogon or oogon as gold or yellow.
