Hosta 'New Kid on the Block'

Originated by Rod Lysne of Northern Grown Perennials in Wisconsin, this cultivar was registered in 2021 as a sport of H. 'Sweet Sunshine'. It is a large size (22 inches high by 40 inches wide) hosta with medium green foliage that has a creamy gold marginal variegation. The broadly ovate leaves are moderately cupped, moderately corrugated and slightly shiny on top. It bears near white, tubular shape flowers in July and sets seed but their viability was not known at the time of registration.

According to the Registration materials: "Creamy gold margins that streak down into green centers. Becomes very puckered with age.  Rather cupped leaves."
