Hosta ‘Mini Skirt’
'Mini Skirt'is a petite and flirty hosta that forms a miniature mound of very wavy, thick, blue-green leaves with creamy yellow margins in spring. During summer months, the center turns more green and the edge lightens to creamy white. Pale lavender flowers with deeper purple stripes appear closely packed together on short, very proportionately sized scapes early to midsummer.
Grow this cute mini hosta off in troughs and other patio containers with good drainage, or plant it right near the edge of the border where it's sure to be seen.

Summer: Groom plants by removing yellow or dead leaves and cut flower spikes back as they finish blooming, unless you want to collect seed.
