This miniature hosta tops off at a towering four inches! In spring, the rippled, lance-shaped leaves are cream with narrow, green margins. As the season progresses, they brighten to near-white with dark green margins. Lavender flowers appear from early into midsummer. 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!
