Descriptions (from various sources):
This new miniature sized hosta is an improved sport of 'Silver Threads and Golden Needles'. Compared to its parent, this selection forms a more compact clump of yellow leaves with green streaks that are spread over the whole leaf rather than being concentrated just in the center. It has very thick leaves for a miniature hosta which means it will have better slug resistance too.
In midsummer, lavender, bell-shaped flowers appear on yellow scapes.
