Hosta 'Pipin the Short'

Alex Malloy of New York registered this hybrid of H. 'Captain Atom' × H. venusta in 2003. The miniature size plant grows only 2˝ inches high with a spread of around 6 inches. Its medium green foliage has a white marginal variegation. Pale lavender flowers bloom from late June into July.


The historical figure shown above is actually "Pepin the Short" so maybe this cultivar was named for someone else...who knows?
