'Green Eyes' is a mini hosta, a sport of H. 'Kabitan'. I've had mine since July 2010. Its tiny leaves have creamy white centres, with narrow dark green margins. Scape has inflorescent leaves. This grew well for me at the beginning, but has a real set-back in 2015. I had it and a few other hostas buried in an unusual pot for the winter and all of them were stunted spring 2015. I speculate there was something about the pot and it went into the garbage. Please feel free to share your pictures of this one.

2016 update - Sept 27. I had shared this one with a friend a couple of years ago. That was fortunate because the section I kept had been ailing for a year or so after I overwintered it in a pot it didn't like and in 2016 it turned its toes up completely. But I was able to get a division back from the friend. I didn't get it from her until mid-Sept.
