Hosta Wind River Gold, Twist of Lime, Striptease, Blue Moon, Brunaria, Lakeside Downsized
This seedling of Knickknack is small, but not exactly mini. This hosta can spread into a little patch sometimes 16” across and about 5” high with 1 foot scapes bearing purple flowers in August. After a few years you can divide this one out in to many plants because it increases quickly, for a nice row at the front of the shade border.
The 2” x 6” leaves have 8 veins and develop rippled edges as they emerge. The green yellow leaves get brighter if given a little sunlight and the margin is a creamy white. More moisture will produce a denser mound.
Lakeside Downsized is the one in the lower front of this photo.
