An open-pollinated seedling of H. 'Neat Splash', this plant was registered by
Bob Kuk of Kuk's Forest in Ohio in 1991. It
forms a small size mound with a height of about 12 inches and a
spread of 26 inches.
The elliptic shaped leaves are smooth
textured and have average substance. In late July, it bears dark
purple flowers followed by viable seeds.
The Book of Little Hostas by
Kathy and Michael Shadrack
(2010) says: "A striking hosta that also does
well in a woodland walk and in a large trough."
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas
states in its Miniature Hostas chapter:
"Increases reasonably rapidly. Good in a pot or a
sink garden, especially if contrasted with a hosta
with heart-shaped leaves of a single color. Can
easily exceed its registered dimensions." (3˝ inches
high by 8˝ inches wide).
