H. longipes hypoglauca seedling, registered in 1999 by H. Benedict and R. Solberg. This seedling was found by Bob Solberg in Herb Benedicts compost pile.

Forms a medium sized mound of smooth, shiny green leaves with rich red petioles, the red extending up into the midrib of the blade. Leaves 6 inches x 4 inches, ovate shaped, slightly wavy, whitish shiny on the underside. Purple flowers open on 16 inch scapes very late from mid September to October. This hosta has been used widely for breeding more red into the petioles and leaves of hostas.
