Hosta 'Little Miss Sunshine' is a less common hosta with unique foliage. The leaves emerge in the spring a healthy green, but then the color lightens as the summer progresses to a lovely gold, and then finally to a very pale yellow before declining into dormancy in the late summer. The mid to late summer flower stalk blooms lavender. 'Little Miss Sunshine' does well in part sun with medium to moist, rich, well-drained soil.
