tissue culture sport of H. 'Cheatin
Heart' is a non-registered cultivar by
Jim Anderson of Winterberry Farms
in Georgia. It forms a
small, dense mound and bears pale purple flowers in mid-July.
An article by Warren I. Pollock in
Hosta Journal (2002 Vol. 33 No. 1) quotes
"Although H. 'Stolen Kiss' was introduced as a sport of H. 'Cheatin Heart', it
is actually a sport from the Tiara Group...probably H. 'Emerald Scepter'...When
we compared it to the Tiara Group plants that were in flower here, the flowering
habit was identical, as were the growth and form. I talked to
Jim Anderson, who
acknowledged that 'anything is possible'."
