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
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.
Similar cultivars include H. 'Whiskey Sour'.
