Hosta 'Sparkling Burgundy'
 

Robert Savory of Savory's Gardens in Minnesota registered this hybrid of H. 'Ginko Craig' × a seedling in 1982. Its medium size (18 inches high) mound features wavy, smooth textured leaves. The pale purple flowers have reddish purple scapes and bloom in August followed by viable seeds.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...has caught the fancy of many shade gardeners and hosta collectors. It is one of the best hostas for flower effect, producing many purple flowers well above the foliage on reddish scapes."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Long racemes of flowers poised almost at right angles to the scape well above the leaf mound."
