An article in The Hosta Journal (2013 Vol. 44 No. 2) states that this is a Tradename or Trademark for the cultivar H. 'Allan P. McConnell'.  

This trademark was owned by Centerton Nursery and Blew Label Perennials.



An article by Warren I. Pollack in The Hosta Journal  (2020 Vol. 51 No. 1) titled Doppelgänger Hostas: Fancy Name for Look-alike Hostas, included a long list of hostas which various hostaphiles, published articles or other sources have indicated "look" the same. Some of these are, in fact, the same plant with two or more different names. Others are hostas that vary in some minor trait which is not immediately discernable to the casual observer such as seasonal color variations, bloom traits, ploidy, etc. So, as Warren mentions, hostaphiles may differ as to the plants listed but then, their opinions are based on visual observations and interpretations.

H. 'Allan P. McConnell' and H. IRISH DIAMNODS.
