Hosta 'Louie Louie'

Don Dean of Minnesota registered this medium size (13 inches high by 42 inches wide) hybrid of ((H. 'Liberty Bell' × (H. 'Urajiro Hachijo' × H. pychnophylla)) x H. 'Mikawa-no-Yuki') in 2014. Its medium green foliage has a near white marginal variegation. The piecrusted leaves are moderately corrugated, deeply wavy, slightly twisted and dull on top. Medium lavender, tubular flowers with translucent edges bloom in August on red burgundy scapes. It sets seeds but their viability was undetermined at the time of registration.

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.
