Dr. Ralph (Herb)
and Dorothy Benedict of Michigan registered this
self-pollinated seedling of H. 'Kabitan' in 1990. A
size plant that grows into a miniature size hosta only 6 inches high with a spread of 18
inches, this cultivar has narrowly elliptic leaves that are
slightly wavy and have thin substance. It bears purple flowers
in July followed by viable seeds.
The Book of Little Hostas by Kathy and Michael Shadrack
(2010) says: "Although lacking in substance, this edger will take
plenty of sun."
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states in its Miniature Hostas chapter: "...leaf color
dulls as the summer progresses...Moderate to rapid growth
rate...Much more robust and a better garden plant than its
parent; the leaves are slightly wider and shorter."
