is one of those cases where there are two hostas
with the same name. One is registered and,
therefore, the "official" version of H. 'Butterfly' while the other is a non-registered plant and
needs to be renamed to avoid further confusion.
Dr. Dick and Jane Ward of Ohio registered this miniature size (3 inches high
by 8 inches wide) sport of H. 'Cricket' in 2012. The leaves are
medium green with a greenish yellow marginal variegation. They
are ovate, flat and dull on top. Medium lavender, tubular
flowers bloom in July. It sets seeds but the viability is not
known at the time of registration.

"The plant, once known as "Lucy's 36-69", "Lucy's
Breeder 36-69", and 'Butterfly', was utilized by
Lucille Simpers in her hybridizing program."
