Hosta 'Quill'
 

A hybrid of the species H. pycnophylla x H. yingeri, this cultivar was originated by Roy Herold of Massachusetts and registered on his behalf by Kevin Walek (Hosta Registrar) in 2009. The medium size mound is about 11 inches tall with a spread of around 30 inches. Its foliage is lanceolate, distinctly wavy, twisted and with thin substance. In August, deep purple flowers bloom.

Similar hostas include Hosta laevigata, H. 'Purple Passion', H. 'Sahara Nights' and H. 'The Razor's Edge'.

There was also a non-registered hosta from Russ O'Harra called H. 'Quills'.
