This non-registered cultivar is a
seedling selection from
Lucille Simpers of Indiana. This huge, somewhat
upright plant grows into a giant size hosta about 35 inches in height with a spread of over
73 inches. The leaves have a deeply lobed base and are slightly
corrugated, cupped upward and unruly. In late June, it begins to
bear very pale lavender flowers.
