Can anyone recommend some of the smaller hostas that would be good for this application? They will be going under Krossa Regal and Regal Splendor, so won't be shaded out by the large hosta. I would like just one good spreader for uniformity in this area.

Thanks!

Tiny White Lines seems to be very short and spreads out nicely, or is that too small?

I see Little White Lines, is that it? I hadn't really thought of how tall the underlying hosta should be. I'll have to think about that. Thanks.

I do like the Little White Lines, and if it's a good spreader I could certainly use it somewhere.

Blue Barron or Radio Waves or Cameo or Ripple Effect?

I've been thinking about the same thing now that I'm sure 'Regal Splendor' will stay where it is. (This is the first year it has bloomed since I moved it two years ago).

My thought today was that I would put a couple of small blue hostas which I have - 'Halcyon' and 'Full Moon' at the base of RS. I just received a division of 'Ripple Effect' as a bonus plant and that might look nice between the blue ones. I think 'Cameo' will stay quite a bit smaller and I prefer to keep the 'Baby Bunting' family all together.
