Descriptions:
Shady Oaks introduction; gold edged sport of 'Baby Bunting'; small but nicely formed with tiny purple flowers in early summer.
This is the second in the series of miniature hostas that arose as mutations from Hosta 'Baby Bunting'. This cutie makes an 8" wide mound of tiny, round green leaves, each with a dramatic 1/2" wide golden margin. The equally tiny 11" tall scapes top the plant in summer. H. 'Hope' is perfect for a rock garden, trough, or in a special case where a stunning miniature is needed. Since H. 'Hope' is so small, do not plant it near larger hostas, or it can be easily lost.
