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."
