A cultivar of unknown parentage,
this hosta was registered by
Mary Chastain of Tennessee in 1997. It is a medium size plant which grows about 14 inches
high and spreads to 40 inches wide. The leaves are narrowly
ovate, smooth textured and of average substance. Its pale
lavender flowers bloom in late July on 3 foot tall scapes
followed by viable seeds.
The Book of Little Hostas (2010)
says: "In good light and a well-drained soil, this variety
may approach medium size...will also look good by itself in a ceramic pot.
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas (2009)
states: "Good in containers or toward the front of a
border...A very wide margin for a narrow leaf. The thinness of
the leaves can cause some leaf blade edges to roll inwards,
giving a canoe-like effect."
