Hosta 'Show Stopper'
 

This is one of those cases where there are several hostas with the same name. None are registered with The American Hosta Society. The first one to be registered would become the "official" hosta of that name and the others would have to be renamed.
 

This is a non-registered cultivar from Rob Claeys of Michigan which is a hybrid of H. hypoleuca x H. plantaginea. It is a medium size plant with shiny, bright green foliage and very purple flowers.
