This plant with an
Hosta venusta background is part of the Abiqua Series of hostas originated by
Dr Charles Purtymun at Walden West Nursery.
A small plant, it grows to about 6 inches in height and spread
to about 14 inches. Purple flowers bloom in July.
The Hosta Handbook by
Mark Zilis (2000), "...easy to confuse with
Hosta venusta. Both become dwarf-sized mounds of oval-shaped
green foliage with purple flowers in July."
Similar cultivars include H. 'Abiqua
Jim Dandy', H. 'Tiny Tears'
and Hosta venusta.
