Hosta 'Harry van de Laar'

This hybrid of H. longipes hypoglauca x H. 'Maruba Iwa' is a non-registered cultivar from Cees Visser of the Netherlands. It forms a small size mound with foliage that is ovate, wavy, has smooth texture and has a thick, white bloom on the underside. It has intensely red petioles with the color moving up into the midrib of the leaf.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Claret-pink dots along the midrib at the base of the leaf."

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term iwa as rock, Iwa Gibōshi or H. longipes and the term maruba as round leaf or round-leafed.
