This Tardiana-type seedling was
registered by the
British Hosta and
Hemerocallis Society on
behalf of the originator,
Eric Smith in 1988. It grows
into a medium size hosta about
18 inches in height with a spread of 43 inches. The leaves are
slightly wavy with smooth texture and thick substance. Clusters
of pale lavender flowers open from late August into September.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...resembles 'Tardiflora' in many foliage traits and its
flowering time, but is similar to H. 'Elegans'
its rich blue foliage color and thick substance."
