A delightful miniature variety reaching to about 8in in height, but it's as tough and resilient as any. This dainty charmer makes a neat, symmetrical clump of silvery blue leaves which roll up endearingly at the edges. Derived from the excellent 'Blue Cadet', and one of the best dwarf Hostas.
This genus of shade lovers has 70 species, all of them from China and Japan, and hybridizers have produced hundreds of exciting crosses. Hostas have many handsome leaf colorations and lavender or white Lily-like flowers on graceful stalks. Plants prefer a moist location, but we've had a mass planting thrive for more than 30 years under a row of Sugar Maples. (In the South and West, evenly moist soil is required.) Because Hostas are grown primarily for their foliage, we give the height of the leaves, not the flowers.
