This was the first hosta I ever owned. But it was a few years into collecting hostas before I realized it was a hosta. It is distinguished by dark purple flower buds which never open. It's also very, rhizomatous which accounts for why I see it up and down the street. Obviously the long forgotten neighbour who gave it to me shared it with others too. Keep it in a spot where nothing really likes to grow or it can become a bully. Please feel free to post your own photos of this hosta.
