  • I highly recommend this vigorous and beautiful Hosta. About ten years ago, this plant produced a delightful sport in my garden that is a solid golden green which has survived and flourished. I have about six divisions now. Not surprisingly, my unnamed sport is more sun-sensitive than Golden Tiara and somewhat less vigorous. Golden Tiara is itself a sport and has produced other sports. (I would have posted a photo of the sport but the format has changed and I no longer see that option.)

    This is my own registration, registered in August 2021 in memory of a recently deceased friend. It is a 5 yr-old OP seedling from H. 'Tickle Me Pink'. It is now growing in 3 Ottawa-area gardens and will be shared further as it grows enough. It is not commercially available.
  • Talking about Hosta 'Kinky Boots', adknative wrote:
    Kinky Boots is a sport of 'Peek-a-boo Purple' and I suspect the name is probably after the theatre play, "Kinky Boots" which ran on Broadway. (After seeing the play with friends, I had to have its name-sake in the garden.) It stands just over a foot high and spreads to nearly 3 ft. The leaves are narrow and long, a blue-green tone but with ruffled, creamy off-white margins. I especially enjoy the petioles, which stand out in a deep burgundy-purple. Its flowers are a lovely lavender. In my zone 3 gardens, this holds up beautifully all summer and into early fall. I have it in full shade, on the north side of my house - not an easy area to grow in, but Kinky Boots is a winner!
  • This is a lovely little hosta, I would not call it a mini. Good one to spread. I like the blue shade too.
  • This is a nice extra large hosta. Lovely light green color. Good grower.
