Hosta 'Junior Miss'
 

Roy Klehm of Illinois registered this sport of H. 'Sitting Pretty' in 1999. It forms a miniature size (6 inches high by 10 inches wide), somewhat flat shaped mound. The leaves are narrowly ovate and slightly waxy. It bears bright purple flowers in late July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...so-called "reversed sport" of 'Sitting Pretty'...has a much more vigorous growth rate and should become a significantly larger plant."

The Book of Little Hostas by Kathy and Michael Shadrack (2010) says: "The reflective leaf surface allows this cultivar to take some early morning sun. Good in a trough or at the front of a raised bed."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Lookin' Pretty'.
