of Northern Grown Perennials in Wisconsin, this fast
growing cultivar was registered in
as a cross of two unnamed seedlings originated by
and Cynthia Tompkins. It is a large size (22 inches high by
40 inches wide) hosta with blue-green foliage. The
broadly ovate leaves are moderately cupped, heavily
corrugated and moderately wavy. It bears pale lavender, tubular shape
flowers in July and sets viable seed.
According to the Registration materials: "Large clump of very dense
foliage. Heavy substance and very rugose at maturity.
Reciprocal sibling of 'Jurassic
Park' from Chet and
Cynthia Tompkins' breeding lines."
siblings occur when the same two plants are used for two
different crosses. In one, Hosta A is used as the pod
parent and Hosta B is the pollen parent. In the second
cross, A is the pollen parent and B is the pod parent.
