Positive lmelling On Jan 9, 2005, lmelling from Ithaca, NY (Zone 5b) wrote:

Medium large 22" high by 48" wide with shiny dark green leaves; 10" long by 9" wide - very shiny underside as well. Blade is very broadly ovate with a deeply lobed base that creates a large heart shape; long thin tip with many slight ripples along the margin. Better than average substance.

Flowers in late July into mid-August. Light to medium purple, bell shaped flowers. Flowering habits are close to that of H. ventricosa, of which it is a seedling.

One of my new hostas for 2005 that I'm really looking forward to!
