Hosta 'Purple Heron'
 

This medium size (16 inches high by 28 inches wide) cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Urajiro Hachijo' which was registered by Hugo Philips of Belgium in 2010. It is a medium green hosta with foliage that is lightly wavy, upright and has purple petioles. Medium purple flowers bloom from mid-August into September.
