self-pollinated seedling of H. 'Neat Splash', this cultivar was registered by
Dr. Ralph (Herb)
and Dorothy Benedict of Michigan in 1990. The plant grows to about 16
inches in height with a spread of 40 inches. The leaves have a
smooth texture and average substance. Its medium purple flowers
are borne in August and produce reddish colored seed pods.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Its fast growth rate and colorful character makes it
useful as a ground cover or specimen."
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "A fast growing suitable for covering large areas.
Needs dividing every four to five years in garden
borders. Rippled leaf blades become less marked as
the hosta matures."
