This flashy miniature hosta has long, narrow leaves with green and bright yellow variegation and ruffled margins. The yellow brightens to creamy white in summer. The stiff, horizontal petioles (leaf stems) hold the foliage in an attractive horizontal mound. 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!
