'Pandora's Box' sports a wide dark green margin surrounding a pure white centre. A lighter green area appears in the leaf where the white and green meet. It is a miniature growing hosta with lavender flowers in summer. Despite its diminutive size this will be a show stopper in any garden! First auctioned for $600 at the 1997 convention and now in the top 25 of the popularity poll. Miniature hostas are great in shady containers or troughs, at the front of the border or along pathways.
