A sport of H. 'High
Noon', this cultivar was registered by
Bob Solberg of Green Hill Farm in North Carolina in 2000. It forms a large size (22 inches high by 36 inches wide) mound of
blue-centered, chartreuse margined foliage. The leaves are
slightly folded, slightly convex and broadly ovate
in shape. Pale lavender
flowers appear from late June into July followed by viable seeds.
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "Moderate growth rate. Very muted margin can attain
a width of 1 in. (2˝ cm)."
An article by Warren I. Pollock in
Hosta Journal (2006 Vol. 37 No. 1) quotes
saying, "H. 'Five O'clock Somewhere' comes from H. 'Five O'clock Shadow'. The
Jimmy Buffet and Alan Jackson song, It's Five O'clock Somewhere was a huge hit
when I was seeking a name for this sport."
registration: H. ‘Five O’clock Shadow’

have been registered as H.‘Five O’Clock
