Hosta 'Little Squirt'

Originated by Dr. Doug Beilstein and Mardy Beilstein of Ohio, this cultivar was registered in 2021 as an open-pollinated seedling of an unnamed seedling of [(H. 'Little Jim' x H. 'Green Sheen') x Unknown] i.e. parents unidentified. It is a fast growing, miniature size (3.5 inches high by 7 inches wide) hosta with medium green foliage. The lanceolate leaves are slightly folded, slightly wavy and slightly shiny on top. It bears white, tubular shape flowers from August thru September and sets seed but their viability was not known at the time of registration.

According to the Registration materials: "This little shaver grows quickly in a tight compact clump with long narrow leaves on short petioles.  Slightly folded and ruffled leaves make this clump look like a pin cushion...few flowers per each scape..."
