Hosta 'Spingarn's Japan'

Alex Malloy of New York registered this cultivar of unknown parentage in 2000. It is a small size plant with ovate shaped, slightly wavy foliage. Purple flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...often has been spelled as 'Springarn's Japan'. It seems almost identical to H. venusta in both foliage and flower, probably being a seedling of it."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Tiny Tears'.

Named for Eleanor (Ellie) Brinckherhoff Spingarn.
