Hosta 'Alley Oop'
 

Alex Malloy of New York registered this sport of H. 'Aoki' in 2001. A small size hosta, it grows to about 10 inches in height and 21 inches in width with leaves that are moderately corrugated and slightly twisted. Its pale purple flowers bloom from late July into August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...belongs to a group of white-centered cultivars that needs careful maintenance. Green leaved sports often develop and must be culled to maintain the true cultivar...makes an unusual specimen plant."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Allegan Fog' and H. 'Cathy's Clown'.

This cultivar won the 2001 Kevin Vaughn Award at the First Look hosta competition as the best sport as chosen by the AHS Judges. It also won the Frances Williams Award at the First Look hosta competition as the best sport as chosen by the Attendees.
