Registered in 1988 by Robert P. Savory, ‘Lemon Lime’ is a mini hosta that re-blooms several times beginning mid-season. The light purple flowers are bell-shaped and fertile. The scape is 13-18″ in height, bare and straight.
The flat, lanceolate, chartreuse-gold leaves measure 3″ x 1″. They sometimes have wavy margins. The leaves start more yellow and become greener as they age which is probably how it got the name lemon lime.
The clumps are about 8” across when mature and about 5” tall.
Lemon Lime’ is a nakaiana hybrid. This one increases quickly so you can use it as a nice bright ground cover in a shady spot.
