Dr. Ralph (Herb) Benedict of Michigan registered this hybrid of H. 'Yellow
Splash' × H. 'Neat Splash' in 1985. The plant grows
into a medium size hosta around 15 inches high with a spread
of 42 inches. Its wavy, dark green foliage has yellow marginal
variegation with some yellow and green streaks. Dark purple
flowers bloom in August.
An article by Warren I. Pollock in
Hosta Journal (2014 Vol. 45 No. 2) states that, "H. 'Liberty Bell' crossed with ('Urajiro Hachijo' ×
H. pycnophylla) is a favorite
pod parent of Don's (Don Dean). He used it to produce H. 'Celtic Bouquet' and H.
'Peek-a-boo Purple', both registered in 2011, and H. 'Ebony Towers' and H.
'Garnet Spires', in 2005. (Special Note: Parentages of 'Garnet Spires' and
'Peek-a-boo Purple' were corrected in the 2013 Registrations issue)..."
Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled,
A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term urajiro as white-backed or white underside.
