Hosta 'Yippee'

Registered by Dr. Doug and Mardy Beilstein of Ohio in 2020, this cultivar is a seedling of (7DB5(S)3W67 seedling x H. 'Salute') × (H. 'Lizard Lick' x H. 'Atom Smasher'). It is an upright growing, small to medium size hosta about 11 inches high by 15 inches wide. The lanceolate leaves are medium green with a creamy white marginal variegation. They are slightly folded, slightly wavy, slightly rippled and slightly shiny on top. Its petioles are "...1 to 1.5X the length of the leaf (8-10 inches) and don't know where to start or stop." Pale lavender flowers bloom in July on red speckled scapes 18 to 20 inches tall but it does not set seeds.

The registration materials state: "...Long, stretched-out, firm bladed leaf. The narrow creamy edge runs around a slightly wavy margin on the end of a petiole that can't figure out where to start."
