Actual spelling of this hosta's name is a bit intriguing. Does anyone have any info about the name? I bought it last year. Hostas Direct lists the height of this hosta as 12". I tend to believe it will get much taller as it's already that height, summer of 2012. It reminds me of Parhelion which is a large hosta. I've located it in an area that gets minimum dappled light. It also has root competition from spruce trees and a large crimson maple, so it won't get big in my garden.
