I am sorry to see there is very little data on this hosta. I received it from a friend a couple of years ago that didn't have any info either. It seems to be a slow grower and has yet to bloom. The foliage is very striking with twisted leaves. It is only about 8" tall and about a foot in width. I have it in morning sun and afternoon light shade. Maybe it requires deep shade?? The leaves don't burn where it is, so will wait and see.
