Hosta 'Lap Dance'

A miniature size (3 inches high by 10 inches wide) hosta, this cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Happiness' which was registered in 2004 by Greg Johnson of Iowa. It has blue-green foliage and it bears pale purple flowers from late June into July on scapes 7 to 11 inches high.


An article titled H. 'Lapdance' versus H. 'Lap Dance' by Joshua Spece in The Hosta Journal (2008 Vol. 39 No.2) pointed out that Greg Johnson registered a hosta called H. 'Lap Dance' in 2004. It is a miniature seedling of H. 'Happiness' with narrow leaves that grow vertically. The color is blue-green with a lighter blue-green center. A sport of H. 'Striptease' from Steve Karbula has been given the name H. 'Lapdance'. The registered version is the officially accepted name and H. 'Lapdance' would probably have to be renamed before registration.

There is another, non-registered plant called H. 'Lapdance' which, according to the rules probably should be given a different name.
