InfoVery attractive, low mound of white-margined foliage; registered seedling of 'Pin Stripe Sister' from Dick and Jane Ward; one of the best new plants in recent years.
Very attractive small mound of green leaves with a wide creamy-white borderůvigorous grower and has lavender flowers in July.
This wonderful new introduction makes a fast growing compact mound to 2' wide. The nearly round medium green leaves are each edged in a nice creamy white border. The clumps are topped with 18" tall scapes of lavender flowers in early summer. H. 'Thumbelina' makes a great hosta for woodland borders.
