Hosta ‘Little Wonder’

For sale by Stafford Lake Nursery

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

One of the best mini Hostas. Leaves only about 5-6 cm long, but grows quite well if happy. These leaves have a broad cream border and form a plant to about 20cm wide, and the clump is topped off with lovely purple flowers up to 30cm high. How do you keep it happy? Good drainage seems to be the key, but it doesn't like to dry out completely. Like most minis it makes an excellent subject for a display trough or bowl.

Plant Finder: about Hosta ‘Little Wonder’

Description

Hosta ‘Little Wonder’. Mini Hosta with green leaves with a cream border. Purple flowers up to 30cm high.

Cultivation

All Hostas need some shade and few will thrive in open strong sunlight. A general rule is that the lighter foliage, the brighter the sunlight that will be tolerated. Variegated varieties tend to require more sun to keep their white, light green or gold stripes. The darker, bluer varieties need more shade.

Once established, Hostas are pretty tough and will spread horizontally to make excellent ground cover.

Interest and use

Grown for their decorative foliage. Form large clumps that are excellent for ground cover. Attracts humming birds in suitable geographical locations.
