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.
There could be some
confusion of names here.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009)
regarding the cultivar H. 'Lucy's
"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." Of course, since the plant discussed
on this page was registered with
American Hosta Society , it is the official hosta of this name.
