Purchased from local gentleman who created this one. Not sure if it has travelled beyond the region of SW Ontario.

Have not seen it in my area.

Not listed in the library, but it is registered with the Hosta Registry ...... is a sport of Purple Dwarf

I've had mine for a few years....Larry is a great guy and this is a nice small hosta. In my garden it's in quite a bit of afternoon sun and holds up well.

Ken, my inner thesaurus was not working last night...i meant to say named...not created.

Vanessa, i take it you have been to Larry's yearly sale too! I am in Ingersoll, so it is an annual trek for me in the spring.

Yes, I've been there a few times but always a week or two before the sale. We live too far away to make it in time for the sale. My husband and I love going to Larry's and Bill's just to look at hostas and talk about hostas!
