Hosta 'Quilting Bee'

This small size cultivar of unknown parentage was registered by the Russ O'Harra Hosta Society in 1999. The 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."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Dionysos', H. 'Lakeside Neat Petite' and H. 'Little Hobber'.

Seedlings include H. 'Diddily-squat'.
