Hosta 'Purple Dwarf'

Karel Hensen of the Netherlands registered this plant from Japan (possibly a hybrid of the species, H. nakaiana) in 1983. The medium size mound grows to a height of 14 inches and a width of 3 feet with slightly wavy, triangular shaped foliage. Its pale purple flowers are borne at the top of 3 foot tall scapes.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...certainly cannot be classified as a "dwarf", forming a mound 14 inches high. The purple flowers are probably the best feature."
