'Kinbotan' is a great groundcover hosta. It forms a dense mat of little green leaves with yellow margins and blooms profusely. It was new to me June 2010. For a little hosta, it last well through the year. It also rebloomed in mid-August, a bit more than a month after its first bloom. Please feel free to share your pictures of this hosta.

Yes. At the moment it gets a lot of sun because we had to remove a large ash tree maybe 10' south of it.
