Descriptions:
1" tall plant with 1x1" lightly wavy, shiny, lance shaped white speckled leaves.
This tiny curiosity is a seedling from 'Outhouse Delight'. One inch leaves emerge white in the spring and gradually develop green specks through the season. By late summer, the lightly wavy foliage of Hosta 'Silver Mine' will be mostly green, but misted with white. Slow growing and will need some morning sun and even moisture to prosper. Makes a tiny mound just 1-2" high and 4-6" across. Pale lavender flowers in mid summer.
