Hosta (Mini) 'Sunlight Child'
Zoom In Photo:

Notes:
This choice miniature from the late Dr. Benedict has been passed around for over a decade but has always remained rare. Little shiny yellow leaves with rippled edges comprise a nice tiny clump topped by lavender flowers in early summer. Miniature hostas are great in shady containers or troughs, at the front of the border or along pathways. Dangerous for collectors who will want to have many more than just one!
