Hosta 'Sun Catcher'

In 2004, Bob Solberg of Green Hill Farm in North Carolina registered this cross of H. 'Ōgon Tsushima' × H. yingeri. This medium size (12 inches high by 29 inches wide) plants change color from light yellow to a medium green as the season progresses. The ovate leaves have above average substance, are slightly wavy and have smooth texture. Medium purple flowers bloom from late July into August on scapes up to 24 inches tall followed by viable seeds.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Persistent keel-shaped bracts on the inflorescence. The purple flowers are a very striking feature but do not appear until the leaves have turned green."

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term ogon or oogon as gold or yellow.
