Hosta The Razors Edge, Venusta and Touch of Class

This award winning mini hosta is dramatically different with its very narrow and very wavy, lance shaped, green leaves. The red petioles get darker as the summer heats up and the lavender flowers attract hummingbirds. Nice in the rock garden or as an edger.

Hosta Stiletto

Paul Aden 1987

Stiletto is a seedling of Amy Aden.

This dwarf plant is vigorous and forms a nice tight mound that can reach 10” wide by 6” tall.

The lanceolate undulating leaves, that are about 7” x 1”, give the plant the illusion of motion. It is green with a narrow white margin and the foot tall spikes carry purple striped flowers in August.

This small hosta is a sport of Gold Edger. A small, cute fast growing hosta; Radiant Edger has round green leaves with a wide gold margin that will streak to the center a little bit. It forms a nice mound gradually spreading to a patch, never getting more than 10 to 12 inches with 22 inch scapes bearing lavender flowers. This hosta will produce more quickly given a little sun. Though not tall the clumps can reach 30” wide.  Excellent form and color contrast make it a nice one to mass plant.

Hosta Pilgrim

By Rasmussen/Malloy – 1997

Thought to be a sport of Flamboyant, Pilgrim is a fast growing front of the border, small to medium sized hosta at 20 inches wide by 8 tall. The grey green leaves have a wide golden margin that turns white as the leaves age. The leaves are ribbed, a little wavy and a little cupped. Flowers are lavender. I have given this as a gift with “Elvis lives” to lovers of “the King”.

This small charmer has pointy lance shaped leaves that have very ruffled edges. It is impressive with its green very shiny leaves, with a thick yellow margin, that seem to bend in many directions. The lavender flowers are also unusual in that that they are striped with white.

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.

Hosta Golden Tiara

By Bob Savory – 1977

Golden Tiara is a fast growing small hosta with heart shaped olive green leaves, that are bordered with a band of yellow. A mature plant can mound to about 20 inches wide by 14 inches tall. The lavender flowers appear in mass in early June and continue for a long bloom period. Because of its vigor and tidy mounded form it makes a nice edger or mass planted ground cover. This plant won the Alex Summers Distinguished Merit Award in 1994 and the Nancy Minks Award for outstanding small-leaved cultivar. The plant does best in light shade to part sun.
