This Japanese selection entered the country as a selection of Hosta longissima, which it is not. When it was recognized as a hybrid, it was given the name Hosta 'Vera Verde'. This small grower is composed of narrow, green, ruffled leaves, bordered with a creamy edge. The 16" wide clumps are topped with 18" spikes of purple flowers in late summer.
