A mini hosta that is vigorous and easy to grow. Good for containers but happy in the ground too. Unlike most hostas, which are usually grown for their foliage, this is grown for it's wonderful flowers which are Violet-blue and held high on 20cm stems above low compact foliage. We have had flowers from spring right through to autumn.
One of the smallest Hostas, Hosta 'Minor' comes from Korea. Its Japanese name is 'Keirin Giboshi'.
We have found this variety to be very slug resistant, unlike most hostas.
