Hosta 'Sunnybrook'

This medium size cultivar was registered in 1987 by Peter Ruh of Ohio and Pauline Banyai of Michigan on behalf of the originator, David Stone of Connecticut. It grows into a large size hosta about 18 inches high and 4 feet wide. The foliage is moderately corrugated, wavy and of thick substance. Its near white flowers bloom starting in mid-June.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...comes very close to 'Tokudama Flavocircinalis' in every respect..."

"Plant has yellow margins varying in width. Looks like a small H. 'Frances Williams'."

This cultivar was named for Sunnybrook Farms which is the home nursery of Peter Ruh.

In The Hosta Journal Vol. 23 No 1 1992, there is an article by Peter Ruh about the so-called David Stone Medium or Miniature hostas which went by a numbering system that started with DSM. This cultivar was called DSM #5 and was described as "A small H. 'Aureo-marginata'one-third the size of H. 'Frances Williams'."
