Hosta 'Stolen Kiss'
 

This 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 The Hosta Journal (2002 Vol. 33 No. 1) quotes Tony Avent "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'."
