Hosta 'Barbara'

This cultivar of unidentified parentage was originated by David Stone of Connecticut and registered on his behalf by Peter Ruh of Ohio in 1987. It is a medium size plant that grows to 12 inches in height with a width of 29 inches. The foliage is slightly wavy and slightly cupped. Medium purple flowers bloom in July.


This cultivar was named for David Stone's daughter.

In The Hosta Journal (1992 Vol. 23 No. 1) there is an article by Peter Ruh about the so-called David Stone Medium or Miniature hostas which went by a numbering system that started with DSM. This cultivar was called DSM #10 and was described as "Medium-small, green leaves, wavy edge, cupped, goes dormant early, flowers pinkish-purple cluster at top 2" of scape."
