Hosta 'Tardiflora Hybrida'
 

A hybrid of H. 'Tardiflora' × H. ventricosa, this cultivar was originated by Georg Arends in Germany in 1911. Peter Ruh of Ohio registered it on Arends' behalf in 1992. It forms a large size plant about 19 inches high by 48 inches wide. The leaves are medium green in color and have a narrowly ovate shape. They are wavy and have smooth texture. Medium purple flowers bloom from mid-August into September.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...one of the earliest hosta hybrids in cultivation outside of east Asia...does not at all resemble 'Tardiflora' or H. ventricosa in foliage or flower...can easily be mistaken for H. 'Lancifolia'. "
