Hosta ‘Little Sunspot’


USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.276.550

Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. Plants form a sturdy mound of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This smaller selection has golden-yellow leaves, boldly edged in deep green. Pale lavender flowers appear in June. Superb choice for edging. 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. A sport of H. ‘Little Aurora'.
