Hosta 'Teaspoon'

This hybrid of H. 'Birchwood Parky's Gold' × H. 'Golden Tiara', this cultivar grows to 11 inches high by 24 inches wide. It was registered by Frank Nyikos of Walnut Grove Nursery in Indiana in 1998. The cupped foliage is moderately corrugated and nearly round. Pale lavender, tubular flowers bloom in July on scapes up to 22 inches tall.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "A superb small hosta...Equally good in the front of the border...Leaves have a fancied resemblance to a coffee spoon rather than a teaspoon for which the plant is named."

The Book of Little Hostas by Kathy and Michael Shadrack (2010) says: "Grows well in light shade. Ideal for the larger tray or trough."
