This stunning new introduction takes "cute" to a whole new level. This sport of H. 'Baby Bunting' is the tiniest variegated hosta in existence. The quarter size rounded blue green leaves sport a large dollop of pure white in the center of each leaf. In mid summer, the clumps are topped with equally small stalks of tiny light lavender flowers. This is not a plant for beginners, and should only be grown by serious collectors who will lavish attention on this tiny gem for the rock or trough garden.
This H. 'Baby Bunting' sport has white leaf centers and a dark green margin with a lighter green between the two; will charm you with lavender flowers in late spring.
