Hosta 'The Sleeper'

Registered by Madelon Gilligan of New Zealand in 2017, this slow growing, medium size (11 inches high by 17 inches wide) cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Maya Kingsnake'. It has an upright growth habit and the leaves are medium green, lanceolate, relatively flat and dull on top. The petioles are very upright with a subtle but distinctive purple-green coloration. Medium lavender with slightly darker stripes bloom from June into July on scapes 12 to 15 inches tall.

The registration materials state: "...Small, neat, mellow colored, slower growing type. The smokey color is subtle, distinctive & unusual...Subtle coloration all season can become even more dull with dry weather."
