A seedling of unidentified parentage,
this cultivar was originated by
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.

at the back of a raised bed or in a woodland garden."
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "Far exceeds its registered dimensions...Lovely
with H. 'Blue Beard'...colorful
but unstable leaf markings."
