Hosta 'Oakview'

This small size (7 inches high by 20 inches wide) cultivar was registered in 1987 by Peter Ruh of Ohio on behalf of the originator, David Stone of Connecticut. It has blue-green foliage that is shiny on top. Lavender flowers bloom from late June into July.

Named for Pauline Banyai's father's nursery.


In The Hosta Journal (1992 Vol. 23 No. 1) there is an article by Peter Ruh about the so-called David Stone Medium or Miniature hostas which went by a numbering system that started with DSM. This cultivar was called DSM #16 and was described as "Medium to small, leaves spade-shaped, deep blue-green, glossy and slightly waved, mounds, flowers lavender, bunches at top of the scape."
