Hosta 'Martini'

This is a hybrid of a gold colored sport of H. 'Blue Dimples' × H. 'Shining Tot' which was registered by Mark Zilis of Illinois in 2009. It is a small size plant about 6 inches high with a spread of around 15 inches. The foliage is medium green, slightly wavy and slightly shiny on top. Pale purple, tubular flowers bloom in August. It sets seeds but the viability was undetermined at the time of registration.

From the Field Guide to Hostas by Mark Zilis (2014), "Other cultivars introduced from the same cross include 'Appletini', 'Azuretini' (blue), 'Bluetini' (blue), 'Bubbatini' (blue), 'Limetini' (gold in spring, then green), 'Martini' (medium green) and 'Saketini' (oddly colored leaves and closed flowers)."
