Hosta 'Cupid's Arrow'

Walters Gardens, Inc. of Michigan registered this tissue culture sport of H. 'Candy Hearts' in 1988. The green foliage has white medial (center) variegation on this small size (10 inches high by 18 inches wide) plant. Its leaves tend to be very ruffled as the clump matures. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "It has not been a successful garden plant, no doubt due to its white-centered foliage."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states in its Hosta Hybrids for Connoisseurs chapter: "Very slow to increase. Requires careful cultivation...Leaves become much wider over the years (although the  plant was named when it was in its juvenile phase).
