I know this is a mini and it came with a tag "Hope".... I know it is NOT "Hope".... Is this Teeny Weeny Bikini? Any other possibilities?

Could you put something in the picture so we have a reference for size? :)

Sure -- I'll have to take another photo... maybe you could use the Pine needles or the mulch or better yet - there is an acorn top to the bottom left of the hosta. Big Grin I know it's a mini for sure if that is any help.... I will take a photo tomorrow with my hand or something for reference. Hurray!

Yep, that's a mini. Rolling on the floor laughing Now the question is who?? Where did you get it? How long have you had it? Did you buy it or was it gifted to you?

Ok, so have you went back to Anderson Acres and looked for the same hosta? Or taken a picture of it to them? Smiling That would be the easiest way to try to find out who it was. Smiling

Here is a current picture of the Mini Hosta.... I am sure now it is NOT a Teeny Weeny Bikini.... Confused

Let me know what you all think!

I know -- it comes in white with a dark green margin... in the spring and then lime greenish with a dark green margin. Then if you see the older leaves.... the center has completely changed.... still has the dark green margin but the middle looks more like Allegan Fog or London Fog.

It is bizzarre!!! Blinking

This is my Teeny-weeny Bikini. I've had it for several years - it's a mature plant, but it never goes green on me. However, seems to me I've seen references to a tendency for some Teeny-weenys to go green. Might want to do a Google search on the name.

OTOH, my Twist of Lime was never white. And it's more vigorous.

Masquerade - again, I believe some plants have a tendency to go green although mine does not. This is a VERY slow grower - a 10 yr-old plant that has not been divided.
