Hosta 'Surfer Girl'

This cultivar of unidentified parentage was originated and registered by Chick Wasitis of Bridgewood Gardens in Maryland in 2000. It is a small size plant only 6 inches high with a spread of around 18 inches. The leaves are green and rippled of an H. venusta type. Purple flowers bloom in July.



In answer to a question about growing smaller hostas that appeared in The Hosta Journal (2012 Vol. 43 No. 2), Chuck & Sue Anderson of Mason Hollow Nursery in New Hampshire made the following comment, "H. 'Cracker Crumbs', 'Cookie Crumbs' and 'Surfer Girl' are a little thinner on the substance and maybe not quite as drought tolerant, but what an awesome 4-to-6-inch-high, weed-choking mat they can form."
