Hosta 'Quilting Bee'

This small size cultivar of unidentified parentage was originated by Russ O'Harra of Iowa and registered on his behalf by the Russ O'Harra Hosta Society in 1999. The medium size mound grows to about 13 inches in height with a width of 30 inches with foliage that is corrugated between the veins. The leaves have a puckered appearance with a distinct tip and slight cupping (up or down). Its pale purple flowers are bell-shaped.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...reminds me of a Peperomia plant."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Scapes rising well above a pleasing mound of attractively shaped leaves with a quilted surface texture."
