All I know is that this was planted years ago before my mother's hip socket went bad - it's definitely not a "new" hosta. Pretty though, isn't it?

That is a nice clump -- is it totally that limey-green color in the spring? Meaning no margin...
Also is looks like a smal clump -- how big?
How big is the leaf -- and any vein count always helps!!
Looks like lavendar blooms.
