Hosta 'Xanadu'
 

This sport of H. 'Island Charm' was registered by Alex Malloy of New York in 2000. It forms a small size mound about 9 inches high by 20 inches wide. The leaves are ovate, wavy and have smooth texture. Its pale purple flowers have reddish purple scapes.

The Book of Little Hostas by Kathy and Michael Shadrack (2010) says: "Grows well in good light in cooler climates and can quickly fill the corner of a trough or the back of a raised bed. Contrasting foliage makes it a standout in the dappled shade of a woodland walk."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "An attractive hosta for all climates if carefully sited. Divide frequently...Differs from its parent in having greater vigor and a significantly wider margin with less streaking and splashing. The bracts are pink margined green."

Similar hostas include H. 'Fantasy Island'.
