Hosta 'Slim Polly'

Oops! Sure looks as if this green hosta is labeled as H. 'Slim Poly' but this is a misspelling of H. 'Slim Polly'

This cultivar has been around for a very long time and was registered by Frances Williams of Massachusetts in 1986. It was the result of a cross of Hosta sieboldii x H. plantaginea that was done in 1948. 'Slim Polly' grows into a small size hosta about 6 inches high with a spread of around 15 inches wide with elliptic shaped leaves that are smooth textured and have thin substance. The medium purple flowers bloom in late August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...sibling to 'Lavender Lady', 'Purple Passion', and 'Snow Flakes'...mainly of historical interest to hosta collectors."
