Info5" tall. Light Shade.
Tiny blue green heart shaped leaves. Cupped. White flowers.
This dwarf from the garden of the late Russ O'Harra is regarded as the finest of the dwarf blue hostas.
The small 9" wide clumps are perfectly adorned with tiny heart shaped blue green leaves.
In late spring, the clumps are topped with 10" scapes of striped lavender flowers.
H. 'Popo' is perfect for use as a border around your favorite woodland bed.
Tiny rich green leaves form a mini-clump; a heavy bloomer.
The tiny, heart-shaped leaves are blue, forming a neat, compact mound.
