This is a green/white/occasional gold streaked six-inch tall x five-inch wide upright plant with mid-season purple flowers on a sixteen-inch scape. A found seedling of unknown parentage, it has proven itself an excellent breeder, with a very high percentage of streaked scapes and excellent streaked seedling production, even in years that seed set is a problem with other hostas. It's greatest value is the vast variety of it's seedling forms. Branched scape, center and edge variegated, dwarfs. XVM has failed to variegate in tissue culture, only OS is or will be available.
