Hosta 'Abiqua Trumpet'
 

This plant of unidentified parentage (H. 'Tokudama' background) was originated by Dr. Charles Purtymun at Walden West Nursery in Oregon and registered in 1986. It produces a dense rounded medium size (14 inches high) mound of foliage with lavender flowers in July followed by viable seeds.

The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009) states "...a more deeply cupped version of Blue Cadet'. Its flower performance is also impressive."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Floriferous. A vigorous, moderately rapid increaser. Ideal in a container or as an edging plant...Spoon-shaped leaves give the plant a pinwheel effect when seen from above. Leaves are bluer at the edges and greener toward the midrib."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Abiqua Blue Edger', H. 'Heart Throb' and H. 'Peter Pan'.
