Hosta 'Whiskey Sour'

A hybrid of H. 'Ōgon Tsushima' H. yingeri, this cultivar was registered in 2002 by Bob Solberg of North Carolina. The 18 inch high, 44 inch wide plant has convexly cupped, slightly corrugated foliage. Its oblong to ovate shaped leaves have flat petioles and average substance. The pale lavender flowers bloom in August followed by viable seeds.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas (2009) states: "A good performer in all regions but needs shade in the hottest climates to prevent bleaching out or scorching...The bright yellow leaves are at their best in early summer. The flowers are widely spaced down the raceme."
