'Cherish' is a mini hosta, a sport from 'Baby Bunting' and this one struggles. I'm always a bit amazed when it shows up again in spring. It has blue-green leaves with an attractive, creamy-yellow centre surrounded by a wide, blue-green border. Leaf centre changes from yellow in spring to white in summer. For me, this is the poorest growing sport from 'Baby Bunting' and I have all four. It was added to my garden spring 2007. Please feel free to share your pictures of this hosta.

Hmm, considered this one but maybe will go for Cameo instead. I think you said that was a better sport from Baby Bunting, Ann?
