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

RE: Anybody else have Twist of 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.

RE: Anybody else have Twist of Dwarf?

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!
