A sport of H. 'Gold Regal', this cultivar was registered by Vic Santa Lucia in 1989. It stands 22 inches high and 41 inches wide with lavender flowers in July.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas (2009) states: "Site in morning sun in cooler climates to intensify the leaf color. In deep shade, the colors remain muted. Slow to moderate growth rate."
