Hosta 'Marilyn Monroe'
 

Peter and Jean Ruh of Ohio registered this seedling of H. longipes 'Urajiro Hachijo' in 2005. It was originated by Jim Hawes of Maryland. A medium size mound that grows to 17 inches high by 36 inches wide, this cultivar has leaves with red petioles and good substance. Purple flowers in dense clusters bloom in September.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "The ruffled leaf edge recurves, revealing the white underside of the leaf. The dark purple anthers contrast with the paler lavender petals."
