This plant with an
background was registered by
Dr. Charles Purtymun at
Walden West Nursery in Oregon
in 1988. A miniature size plant, it grows to about 6 inches in height and spread
to about 14 inches. Purple flowers bloom in July followed by
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...easy to confuse with
H. venusta. Both become dwarf-size mounds of oval-shaped
green foliage with purple flowers in July."
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states in its Miniature Hostas chapter: "Ideal for
sinks or small containers. The flowers sometimes rebloom."
Similar cultivars include H. 'Abiqua
Jim Dandy', H. 'Tiny Tears' and H. venusta.
