Registered by June Colley and John Baker of England in 2020, this cultivar is a seedling of H. gracillima unnamed seedling × H. longipes unnamed seedling. It is a small size hosta about 9 inches tall by 12 inches wide with dark green foliage that has cream, yellow and white streaked variegation. The elliptical leaves are relatively flat and very shiny on top. Pale purple flowers on reddish purple scapes bloom from late June into July followed by viable seeds in reddish brown pods.
