Hosta 'Cameo'

Hosta

Plant Type: Perennial
MORNING sun/AFTERNOON shade to FULL shade

A fantastic mini hosta; reverse sport of 'Pandora's Box'. Small, round, green leaves with creamy white margins. Tiny lavender-purple flowers are produced on 12" scapes in early summer. The perfect size for containers, rock gardens, or edging. Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.
