The late Pauline Banyai made this selection from some seedlings of an open pollination of 'Blue Boy'. A rapid grower, the clump size quickly reaches 18" in diameter by 12" tall. Many 15" bloom scapes with light lavender flowers. The color of the heart-shaped leaves is blue-gray and they are slightly cupped. It blooms in midsummer and Van Wade refers to this bloom as profuse and suggests using the hosta in mass plantings.
