Hosta 'Margaret'

A cultivar of unidentified parentage, this cultivar was originated by David Stone of Connecticut and registered on his behalf by Peter Ruh of Ohio in 1987. The miniature size plant grows to only 5 inches in height by 13 inches wide. Its green colored foliage is narrow and wavy. Purple flowers bloom in August.

This cultivar was named for Pauline Banyai's granddaughter.

In The Hosta Journal (1992 Vol. 23 No. 1) there is an article by Peter Ruh about the so-called David Stone Medium hostas which went by a numbering system that started with DSM. This cultivar was called DSM #19 and was described as "Small, leaves medium-green, lanced-shaped, wavy edge. Strong compact grower, flowers pink-purple."
