Hosta 'Elf Slippers'

Registered by Gerry Hicks of Maine in 2018, this cultivar is a fast growing, small size (10 inches high by 20 inches wide) sport of H. 'Sharon's Choice'. It has medium green colored foliage with yellow marginal variegation. The leaves are lanceolate, heavily rippled, slightly folded, moderately cupped and slightly shiny on top. The leaf blade extends down into the petiole. Medium lavender flowers bloom from mid-July into August on scapes 15 to 25 inches tall followed by viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "...Narrow leaves with wavy edges are cupped enough to look like little elf shoes...yellow margins fade to white later."
