YOU KNOW HOW WE FEEL ABOUT ANYTHING IN MINIATURE
Hostas have so many redeeming qualities. They are optimistic perennials that rise to the occasion with tightly furled spears every spring, just when we need them most. And they’re ultra-reliable landscape staples that make a full and interesting statement. Especially these miniature 4″ versions, which we are totally smitten with as of late.
Hosta Curly Fries – The 2016 Hosta of the Year, Curly Fries forms a finely textured, arching mound of scalloped or rippled, spear-shaped leaves in an interesting pale chartreuse. This one’s a conversation starter, visibly textured and playful, and it will grow up 10″ tall and 16″ wide.
Hosta Twist of Lime – Variegated goodness, with a golden center and wavy dark-green margins. This guy is a vigorous grower that forms a nice 4″ tall and 1′ wide mound. It’s deep purple flowers are a colorful bonus.
Hosta Rainbow’s End – Thick, canoe-shaped leaves give this handsome hosta a tailored look. Its foliage is brushed with bright gold centers and a dark-green border, and Rainblow’s End grows up to 10-12″ tall.
Hosta Gemstone – We love some good contrast, and Gemstone delivers with a low mound of rich blue-green foliage, perfect for an edging or accent plant. These minis will grow about 5-7″ tall.
