This sport of H. 'Little Jay' was originated by
Jan van den Top from the
Netherlands and registered by
Danny Van Eechaute of
Belgium in 2008.
It was granted a U.S. patent in 2010. The small size plant grows to about 6 inches in height
and 12 inches in width. Its medium blue-green foliage has a creamy
white medial (center) variegation. The leaves are lanceolate, pointed at the end, slightly twisted and have
good substance. It bears medium lavender, tubular flowers from
June into July and does not set seed.
The Book of Little Hostas by Kathy and Michael Shadrack
(2010) says: "A fairly fast growth rate can be achieved with
morning sun followed by dappled shade. Good in a trough or tray."
cultivars include H. 'Manzō'.
