This plant of unidentified parentage was originated by
Dr. Charles Purtymun at
Walden West Nursery in Oregon.
It forms a small size mound about 9 inches high and 12
inches wide. The leaves are heart shaped and slightly wavy. Pale
purple flowers bloom in July.
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "Vigorous, a rapid increaser. A superb hosta for ground
cover although not forming dense mounds."
Similar hostas include
H. nakaiana and H. 'Rock Princess'.
