Descriptions:
First Look 2003 William and Eleanor Lachman Award (Best Seedling Judges).
It is a small, rapidly growing plant with long narrow and tapered leaves which are intensely rippled and serrated. That's right - serrated! This is a hot one for you hybridizers and would-be hybridizers out there. Truly ground-breaking from a genetic perspective, it's appeal as a "collector's hosta" in no way disputes it's garden worthiness. It is extremely fertile both ways, and sun-tolerant.
The leaf edge looks dangerous, but the only damage likely to be incurred is to your
perceptions of what might previously have been termed "hosta".
Blooms very late in the season with lavender flowers.
