Spreading groundcover hosta with purple flowers that have white stripes down the inside of each petal.

Van Hoorn Nurseries introduction, the name has been changed and is now officially labelled "Fiesta Verde" instead of "Verde Fiesta".

Hosta clausa seems to spread faster. H. clausa tends to lose its foliage VERY early in the season compared to other hostas, perhaps "Fiesta Verde" foliage lasts longer....?? I'll have to watch and see in the fall.
