The Genus HOSTA by
W. George Schmid (1991),
as a hybrid of
H. sieboldii spathulata from
Eunice V. Fisher of Wisconsin
introduced in 1963. It was included on an Alex Summers'
list as No. 101. It is a small size mound with
narrow green leaves. The seed pods have dark purple dots
and appear to be black.
Another source says it
was originated by someone known only as "Lewis".
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...may no longer exist."
"Plant's seed pods are dotted with dark purple,
appearing black. Otherwise, like
H. sieboldii spathulata."
