Description:
A hosta of uncertain origin - is it a species, or is it a cultivar of ancient origin? The plants, in the Sino-Himalayan Garden at VanDusen, come consistently true from seed, producing relatively small plants with leaves that rarely exceed 15cm (6in) in length. The flower stems, which grow to 25-30cm (10-12in) in height, have from 3-7 blooms each, opening in succession over several weeks during the summer.

Notes:
This hosta looks particularly good when planted in large drifts, which establish more rapidly than with most varieties.

Cultivation:
For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant. Sow seed in a cool greenhouse or coldframe in spring. Grow on in any good garden soil with good drainage. Plants should attain flowering size in 2-3 years. General care is the same as for any Hosta.
