were crossed to create this cultivar which was registered by
Roy Herold of Massachusetts in 1993. The small size (6-8 inches high by around 12 inches wide) mound of dense, moderately wavy foliage has
purple flowers that open in August followed by viable seeds.
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "Grow in a pot until the root system is well
established before planting out. Best suited to a
rock garden or small container with small,
round-leaved hostas for contrast...The leaves are
strongly undulate to twisted which causes the base
of the blade to fold in the enter; the leaves become
flatter and wider as the plant matures. Variegated
leafy bracts are clasped to the scapes."
