Dr. Jim and Jill Wilkins of Michigan
registered this cultivar in 1989 as a seedling of
H. 'Gold Regal'. It is a
medium size (18 inches high by 42 inches wide) hosta with purple flowers in July.
The flower scapes are about 30 inches tall followed by viable seeds.
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "A superb hosta...Considerably smaller than its
parent and a much brighter color."
Similar cultivars include H. 'Fort
Knox', H. 'Gold Regal' and H. 'Skyrocket'.
