It's called 'miracle lemony' hosta, worth checking out! Other Hosta to plant near and compliment it are 'blue mouse ears' and 'white feather'.

I'm an old fuddy duddy but I am less than impressed. The foliage is not the greatest and I'll bet the flowers are paler than the picture. I would have to see it growing and in bloom before I would be tempted...... Shrug!

The flower color is new, I'm sure foliage will be enhanced down the line. I've seen them in person and they are a creamy yellow white, which still is hard to find in Hosta, I think it's a unique find rather than purple flowers.

I grow Hostas almost exclusively for the foliage. I wouldn't care if they didn't bloom. Online reviews for Breck's have many negative comments and the catalog pictures look like they are photoshopped to me....many nurseries do that. One year they offered a collection of lilies and the pictures were of Lillium and Hemerocalis. I'll buy my Hostas elsewhere.....

Other companies have them too, and I've seen the flowers in person and they are very light yellow.
