A striking miniature hosta that has heavily corrugated, ovate leaves with dark green margins that sometimes jet into the creamy yellow to white centre. Bright purple buds open to reveal bright purple flowers. 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!
