The parentage of this
cultivar is unknown and it was registered by
Peter Ruh of Ohio in 1990 on behalf of the originator,
Lucille Simpers of Indiana. The small size, 10 inch high mound has a
spread of about 31 inches with wavy leaves with thin substance. It
forms semi bell-shaped flowers of bright purple color in August.
The Hostapedia by
Mark Zilis (2009), "It makes a fairly small size mound of
wavy, gold foliage and is rhizomatous. That fact and its
flowering habits give evidence that it is a 'Decorata' seedling."
Similar cultivars include H. 'Spring Sensation'.
