A fast growing hybrid of (H. nigrescens x an open-pollinated seedling) x a seedling of (H. tsushimensis 'Ōgon' × H. yingeri), this cultivar was registered by Dr. Doug and Mardy Beilstein of Ohio in 2013.

It is a medium size hosta about 17 inches high by 36 inches wide with intensely blue-green foliage. The leaves are broadly ovate, moderately folded, moderately wavy and glaucous on top. Medium lavender, tubular flowers bloom in September. It sets viable seeds.
