This is highly regarded as one of the best (and only) tiny leaf blue hostas. It could best be described as a miniature H. 'Blue Cadet'. The tiny rounded leaves make a perfect miniature mound to 8" wide.
In early summer the pale lavender flowers top the plant to 18".
One of the best dwarf hostas, round blue-green leaves with white flowers.
One of, if not the smallest of blue hostas, with small rounded leaves about 2½" wide at maturity. Pale lavender flowers. Our photo is not as clear as we would like, but it does indicate the size of the plant.
Small plant with blue-green leaves, heavy texture.
Pale lavendar flowers in June and July. Great rock garden plant.
A very small blue-green which forms a dense, compact mound. Attractive slight cupping to the leaves. Good substance on this Savory Shield Award winner. Lavender flowers.
