InfoGlossy leaves.
This dwarf is the counterpart to H. 'Bitsy Gold'. Again, the leaves are long and narrow but this plant has a great dark green color and a nice sheen. Lavender flowers late.
This H. longissima hybrid is characterized by its long, narrow leaves which contrast nicely with the many heart-shaped leaves of the other Hostas in your garden. Its size and color lends itself to easy placement in a landscape design. Lavender, bell-shaped flowers appear in late summer. Should have been named "Cute Bitsy Green."
