Mutation of Hosta 'Blue Cadet' that makes a tight 1' wide mound of small, round, blue-green leaves on a perfectly symmetrical clump.

Hosta of the Year 2008

Emile & Jane Deckert registered the hosta in 2002. The name came to Emile when he noticed the shape of the unfurling new leaves in the spring! Sold at auction at the AHS Convention; 2001, Raleigh, N.Carolina for $250.00.

This is a lovely little hosta, I would not call it a mini. Good one to spread. I like the blue shade too.
