An excellent small white-margined hosta. Dark green oval leaf with an irregular fine white/cream detailing to the leaf edge. Leaves are long and narrow. Very nice on the path edge or in a container. Vigorous grower! (Plant 18x8)
This is one of our favorite small hostas.  Leaves are deep green with a narrow white edge.   It forms a neat, compact mound.  Very refined, excellent for edging.
I don't know why this plant is not more popular. It's a great edger or rock garden subject, but not nearly as well known as the similar 'Tiara' and 'Scepter' series plants. It forms a neat, tight, symmetrical mound of dark green, pointed leaves, cleanly edged in white. Purple flowers.
Small dark green lance shaped leaves (3"x2") graduating to a sharp point. An attractive white edge makes a nice eye catching contrast. This compact mound is ideal for edging or as a potted plant. Mature plant drapes nicely. 8"x18". Blooms purple. Shade to 3/4 sun. Growth rapid.
Compact mound with medium-small, narrow, green, white-edged leaves and lavendar flowers.
Very nice, neat mounds of dark green leaves with variable cream margin. Leaves are long and narrow. Dark lavender flowers in July.
