Hosta 'Spingarn's Japan'

Alex Malloy registered this cultivar of unknown parentage in 2000. It is a small 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 Hosta venusta in both foliage and flower, probably being a seedling of it."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Tiny Tears'.
