This very new introduction from Q&Z is a hybrid between the largest and the smallest, H. Sum and Substance and H. venusta. The result is a delightful small hosta with leaves that curl downwards...there is probably some significance in that. The light green mounds to 2' wide, are draped with light lavender flowers in mid summer.
