William and Eleanor Lachman registered 'Little Wonder' in 1989. It grows 12" in diameter and 5-6" high. The leaf is dark green with up to a .5" wide, creamy white to white margin with some jetting to mid-rib and some going over the green producing a grayed color. The leaf measures 2.25-2.5" x 1.5" and has 3-4 pairs of veins. The petioles and scapes have red dots, according to a list from Glen Williams. The funnel-shaped flowers are medium purple and borne at right angles to the 14-16" scape that has a few leafy bracts. The flowers bloom from July 15-August 15 in Massachusetts.
