This cultivar was
Beverly and Dave Stegeman of Indiana
and registered by
Hack of Indiana in 2006. It is the result of a cross of H. 'One
Man's Treasure' × H. 'Squash Casserole' that forms a small size mound about 8 inches tall with a spread of
20 inches. The foliage is oblong to ovate with moderately rippled margins, red
petioles, slightly lobed bases and long, thin curved tips. Deep reddish purple
flowers with pink tepals bloom from late August into September.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...shows very attractive reddish
floral bracts in beautiful contrast to the gold foliage."
The Book of Little Hostas by Kathy and Michael Shadrack
(2010) says: "This plant needs plenty of sun to produce that
bright yellow coloration and bring out the red in the petioles and leaves. Will
look good in a container or trough."
