Hosta 'Shining Tot'

This cultivar is a hybrid of Hosta venusta and H. 'Rock Master' that was registered by Paul Aden in 1982. It forms a miniature sized (5.5 inches high) mound of ovate shaped, slightly wavy foliage of smooth texture. In August, it produces pale purple flowers on 12 inch high scapes.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Over the years, 'Shining Tot' has proven to be a premier dwarf-sized hosta. It can be successfully grown in troughs, as well as in the shaded rock garden. Hybridizers have found it to be a superior breeding plant, producing dwarf-sized seedlings with good substance. Overall, it is much like Hosta pulchella in both foliage and flower."
