Hosta 'Schneewittchen'
 

Originated by Heinz Klose of Staudengärtnerei Klose in Germany, this small size, non-registered cultivar is of unidentified parentage of an H. sieboldii type. This is a small size (6 inches high) plant has narrow elliptical, green leaves with white medial (center) variegation. The leaves are moderately rippled with smooth texture and thin substance. Purple flowers are borne in August and it forms many seed pods.

The Genus HOSTA by W. George Schmid (1991) says, "Name is German for Snow White."
