Hosta 'Hidden Cove'

A seedling of unidentified parentage, this cultivar was originated by Eugene Foster of New York registered by Alex Malloy of New York in 1998. It is a small plant that grows to about 8 inches high with a spread of 17 inches. The lance shaped leaves are wavy and have thin substance. Pale purple flowers bloom starting in mid-July.

The Book of Little Hostas by Kathy and Michael Shadrack (2010) says: " can grow larger than expected, so best placed at the back of a raised bed or in a woodland garden."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Far exceeds its registered dimensions...Lovely with H. 'Blue Beard'...colorful but unstable leaf markings."

Similar hostas include H. 'Lakeside Little Tuft'.

Sports include H. 'Hideout', H. 'Pirate's Cove', H. 'Smuggler's Cove' and 'Valley's Secret Cove'.
