This cultivar of unidentified parentage was registered by
Frank Riehl on behalf of
the originator, Russ O'Harra of Iowa in 1993. It forms a small size (8 inches high by 15 inches wide) mound with ovate shaped, slightly wavy
foliage of average substance. From late June into July, it bears lavender colored
flowers followed by viable seeds.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...ranks as one of
the premier dwarf-size cultivars. It has good vigor and can be used in a
variety of ways in the landscape."
The Book of Little
Hostas (2010) says: "Needs some early morning sun
in cooler climates, where it will hold its color until late in the season. Will
grow well in a woodland garden, raised beds, and larger containers."
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states in its Miniature Hostas chapter: "Site in morning
sun in cooler climates to boost the vigor, then dappled to light shade."
