Trifecta, a sport of popular Hosta Little Sunspot, is a nice addition to the selection of miniature Hostas. It has heart-shaped leaves, which feature three distinct colors, hence the name. The centers are white and are edged with an irregular streaky green border, and there are also golden splashes of color. It has attractive lavender flowers and so far has been a good grower. Mature size is suggested to be 6 inches high by 12 inches wide. This is a nice plant for those of us who have limited space.
