Hosta 'Valley's Ticket to Ride'
 

Registered by Jeroen Linneman of the Netherlands in 2018, this upright growing cultivar is a medium size (17 inches high by 16 inches wide) seedling of H. 'Tsuma Tajima' × H. pycnophylla. The leaves are medium green and have yellow to white streaked variegation. They are nearly round, slightly cupped, deeply wavy, very shiny on top and have a glaucous bloom on the bottom. Pale purple flowers bloom in October on scapes up to 24 inches tall followed by viable seeds in streaked pods.

The registration materials state: "...Nice combination of both parents - streaked leaves with nice white backs hold up well into autumn...green gets darker and streaks turn pure white later in the season."
