Hosta 'Mini Skirt'

(Walters Gardens 2013)

Clump Size: (MINI-S) 15" x 8"

Leaf Size: 3" x 2" -- Vein Pairs: 8 - 10

Description: Thick blue-green leaves are edged with a ruffled and unruly, wide creamy yellow to creamy white margin. The edge isn't all that stable so each plant can be highly variable from each other.

Blooms: Light lavender flowers bloom in dense clusters that rise just above the foliage in perfect symmetry with the clump.

Comments: Hosta 'Mini Skirt' is a ruffled sport of Hosta 'Mighty Mouse' that becomes a surprisingly larger plant than its parent. It can be attractive but the unstable nature of the yellow edge means you may have to divide off any solid cream divisions, though in time we hope they will stabilize on their own.

Light: Part sun to full shade. -- Soil: Humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil.

Related Plants: Blue Mouse Ears, Mighty Mouse

Zones: 2 - 8
