Hosta 'Peach Brandy'


Registered by Bob Solberg of Green Hill Farm in North Carolina in 2022, this cultivar is a seedling of [(H. 'Smiley Face' × H. 'Beet Salad') × (H. 'Peacock Strut' × H. 'Beet Salad')]  × ["Solberg Seedling 48/49Best" × (H. 'Sun Shower' × H. 'Designer Genes')] (**For clarity sake, the hostas in Red are the background of the unnamed pod parent and the ones in Green are the background of the unnamed pollen parent of this cultivar.)

This is a medium size plant about 14 inches high by 22 inches wide with bright yellow foliage. The leaves are broadly ovate, slightly wavy, slightly corrugated and slightly shiny on top. They have rich purple petioles with white wax extending into each leaf. Reddish purple flowers bloom from July into August on scapes 18 to 20 inches tall .

The registration materials state: "Bright yellow leaves with purple filling the base and extending halfway up the leaf...yellow leaves become light green later in the season ."

Since they have exactly the same complicated background, we would suspect that this hosta is a sibling of H. 'Rough Lemon'...but we don't know for sure.
