Hosta 'Bitsy Green'

This cultivar was registered by Robert Savory of Savory's Gardens in Minnesota in 1985 as a hybrid of H. longissima x an unnamed green seedling. It grows into a miniature size hosta about 4 inches in height and a width of one foot. The dark, glossy leaves are about 4 to 5 inches long and 3/4 inch wide. It bears small, lavender flowers followed by viable seeds.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states in its Miniature Hostas chapter: "Early to emerge...Can be grown in a pot plunged in a pond as long as the crown is above water level. The thin leaves are vulnerable to pest damage."

Similar hostas include H. 'Bitsy Gold'.

Seedlings include H. 'Bitsy Blue'.
