Native to Korea. Rhizomatous mound of dark green foliage topped by closed purple flowers in August. Leaves 7 1/2" x 3 ", shiny on top and underside, narrowly ovate to elliptical, smooth textured, average substance, covered with red-purple dots on the petiole. The rich purple and pink flowers resemble tiny balloons that stand out in a garden against the green. Very showy flowers when in mass. Because of its rhizomatous nature, give this plant its own area as it will quickly fill it. Although each plant is small, it will spread and take over an area. Give it lots of water and sun to encourage lots of beautiful blooms. This one takes the ordinary out of a plain green hosta.
