Hosta 'Sabrina'

This is one of those cases where there are two hostas with the same name. Neither is registered with The American Hosta Society. The first one to be registered would become the "official" hosta of that name and the other would have to be renamed.

Registered by Louis Vissers of Belgium in 2016, this medium size (11 inches high by 19 inches wide) cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Shifting Perspectives'. It has golden yellow foliage that is slightly folded, slightly rippled and dull on top with purple spotted petioles. Medium lavender flowers with a white base inside bloom from mid-July into August on scapes up to about 30 inches in height. It sets seeds in pods that have purple dots and stripes.

The registration materials state: "Purple dotted petioles and changing leaf colors...Golden yellow turns greenish yellow..."

Originated by Jocelyne Bastille of Aux Mille Hostas in Canada, this non-registered cultivar is of unidentified parentage. It is a small size hosta with very wavy, dark green foliage. The leaves are lanceolate with thick substance. It bears lavender flowers with a darker stripe and dark red scapes.
