Hosta 'Collector's Choice'

Originated by Bill Janssen of Collector's Nursery in Washington and registered on his behalf by Kevin Walek (Hosta Registrar) in 2009, this is a cultivar with H. venusta in its background. The miniature size (5 inches high by 16 inches wide) mound with leaves that have a dull top and a whitish shiny underside. It bears purple flowers in July.

The Book of Little Hostas by Kathy and Michael Shadrack (2010) says: "Keep out of bright sunshine to maintain that hint of blue. Ideal in a collection of small hostas in a container."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states in its Miniature Hostas chapter: "Site in light to moderate shade to retain the slight blueness in the leaves for longer. Grow with other tiny hostas in a stone sink or ceramic container."


We suspect that the plant shown above is mislabeled. It looks a bit taller than 5 inches in height.
