Quick Overview:

This irresistible miniature to small sized hosta is the perfect accompaniment for bright blue hostas like ‘Prairie Sky’, especially when planted together in containers or near the front of the border.  It forms an arching, wiggly clump of extremely rippled, narrow leaves.  Position this hosta where it will receive morning sun, as its chartreuse foliage will be brightest there.  Mature plants will develop red speckled petioles.  Lavender flowers top the clump in midsummer.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Tolerant of a wide range of soil conditions. Does best in rich, moist, organic soils in light, sun-dappled shade. Divide plants as needed in spring or autumn (perhaps easiest in early spring before the leaves unfurl).
