Hosta 'Woodland Elf'

Don Dean of Minnesota crossed H. 'Little Wonder' H. 'Popo' to create this cultivar which he registered in 2005. It grows into a miniature size hosta about 5 inches high and spreads to 15 inches wide with foliage that is slightly wavy, slightly cupped and has smooth texture. The lavender flowers begin blooming in mid-June.

Similar cultivars include H. 'Cookie Crumbs' and H. 'Little White Lines'.
