Need search links for a deep purple flowered hosta NOID
I was organizing my pics from 2011 when I made a re-discovery. I had been given a hosta along with Stiletto last year and thought it was a beat-up Lanciofolia. It was in rather sad shape, a cull by my neighbor who had gotten it from her girlfriend. I stuck it in the ground. Ho-hum; another Lancifolia type planting while figuring where to stow it away.
I think I got a pearl out of the cull. In October my Lancifolia had their usual late blooms and my NOID was so profusely covered with deep purple blossoms on 12" scapes that they almost hid the plant. Deepest solid purple I have ever seen. They were about the size of ventricosa blossoms. I took a half dozen pics of leaves and flowers.
Leaves are about the same size as Lancifolia but not as dark green and less shiny. They have 5 vp. But they are noticably more wavy than Lancifolia. For some reason I thought of tardiana or longipes but found nothing.
I hope to post a pic in a day or two but want to search for deep purple flowered, lance shaped leafed hostas in the meantime. One way or another I will post a pic. I have a real mess with my pics scattered helter-skelter among windows, Hp and Photo Bucket. When I finish I will be bombarding Hosta Forum with pics.
Can anyone help me without a picture (and please: no lecture about a pic being worth a hundred words. I know!) lol
