Dr. Alan Tower of Washington registered this
cultivar of unidentified parentage in 2005. It forms a small size (11
inches high by 27 inches wide) mound
with wavy, very shiny foliage of good substance. In August, it
produces lavender colored flowers with purple stripes atop
scapes from 15 to 24 inches in height. 'Nancy' does not produce seeds.
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "It is unusual for a medium to small yellow-leaved
hosta to have such good substance."
