(Hideko Tajima x Purple Verticulated Elf ) from Don Dean, 2013. Beautiful upright hosta with pointed blue leaves with rich purple petioles. The leaves are 9 inches long by 5 inches wide with 10-11 pairs of veins, intensely blue-green, slightly rippled, heavy glaucous bloom on top and on the underside, lightly twisted. The purple flowers are spectacular: 1 3/4 inches long, speckled pale purple with lavender edges, tubular, with a 360 degree whirled flower placement, flowering in August.
