A cultivar from
Dr. Ralph (Herb) Benedict of Michigan, this seedling selection
of unidentified parentage was registered by Rod Kuenster of Iowa in 2010. It grows into a
miniature size hosta about 4
inches high and 12 inches wide with medium blue-green foliage.
The leaves are lanceolate, slightly twisted, slightly wavy and dull to glaucous on
top. Medium purple flowers bloom from mid-July into August.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...appears to have a
H. longipes background, possibly being out of 'Maruba Iwa'."
We wonder if this cultivar was named after the drink called the
"Slurpee"...or after something else.
