Lucille Simpers of Indiana originated this seedling of H. 'Snow
Mound' which was registered on her behalf by
Peter Ruh of Ohio in 1991. It is a large size plant which grows to about
20 inches in height with a spread of around 58 inches.
The foliage is yellow with a bluish bloom in the spring
but changes to bright gold by the end of the summer. Its
leaves are slightly rippled and twisted at the tip. Very
pale purple flowers bloom from late June into July.
There could be some
confusion of names here.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "The plant, once known as "Lucy's 36-69", "Lucy's Breeder
36-69", and 'Butterfly', was utilized by Lucille Simpers in her
hybridizing program." In 2012, a different hosta was registered
as 'Butterfly' and that,
of course, makes it the official plant of that name.
