Plant Overview

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.

Height: 20cm

Synonym: Hosta ventricosa 'Minor'

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow almost everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
