Hosta ‘Stiletto’


Miniature Hosta

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.278.710


Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. Plants form sturdy mounds of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This miniature selection has narrow dark-green wavy leaves with a white margin. Purple-striped lavender flowers appear in August. Nice for edging or in the shady rock garden. Suitable also for planting in mixed containers or tubs. Hosta go completely dormant in the fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid spring. Easily divided in either spring or fall, but plants may be left alone for years. Slugs may need to be controlled. Registered by Paul Aden in 1987.
