Hosta 'Pink Lemonade'

Greg Johnson of Iowa registered this hybrid of H. 'Kinbuchi Tachi' × H. sieboldii in 2004. It grows to about 11 inches in height with a spread of 32 inches. The chartreuse colored foliage has red petioles. Medium purple flowers bloom in midsummer.

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term kinbuchi as gold-edged or yellow edged and the term tachi as upright, 'Tachi Gibōshi' or H. rectifolia.
