Hosta 'Mini Skirt'
 

This cultivar is a sport of H. 'Mighty Mouse' which was discovered by Maria Martinez and registered by Walters Gardens, Inc. of Michigan in 2013. It is a small size plant which grows to about 7 inches in height with a spread of around 14 inches. The slightly blue-green foliage has a wide, creamy white marginal variegation. Its leaves are broadly ovate, intensely wavy and dull on top. The medium lavender, bell-shaped flowers bloom from June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...have not seen in a collection or garden; not available for sale; may no longer exist."

Obviously a hosta by this name exists since it was registered in 2013. (Or, it is probably a totally different plant from the one mentioned by Zilis.)
