This cultivar was
originated by Karel Hensen
of the Netherlands and registered on his behalf by
Peter Ruh of Ohio in 2002 as a
new name for Hosta "cucullata". It is a large size plant
about 21 inches high by 52 inches wide with medium green
colored leaves. The foliage is broadly ovate, deeply
lobed, slightly wavy and moderately corrugated. Pale
lavender flowers bloom in July.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...is not the same as H. 'Cucullata',
which is a form of
(1991, p. 46)
associated the name Hosta cucullata with
and H. 'Sieboldiana'. The Hosta cucullata plants that I
have examined are absolutely not close to either
species, instead being more like 'Fortunei Obscura'."
In other words, there is some confusion
over the name of this hosta like there is with several
others. Oh, well, that's just part of hostadom.
