Rather special variety. A hybrid of Hosta species pyncophylla and yingerii. Rapidly forms a small to medium sized clump of wavy, slightly glossy pointed leaves on long petioles. I like to think of it as a bit of a hedgehog hosta! having a lot of eyes means it has a lot of flowers, and that is where it really scores. Produces a cloud of lavender purple flowers, possibly the greatest mass that I have seen on a Hosta. This plant is a real star for the aficionado of Hostas or just the plain keen gardener looking for something a bit different.
