About This Hosta
Golden Needles is a miniature hosta that is an improved sport of Silver Threads and Golden Needlesﻗ°ﻷ. Compared to its parent, this selection forms a more compact clump of yellow leaves with green streaks that are spread over the whole leaf rather than being concentrated just in the center. It has very thick leaves for a miniature hosta which means it will have better slug resistance too. In midsummer, lavender, bell-shaped flowers appear on yellow scapes. This colorful mini looks especially sharp when combined with dark foliage plants such as Black Mondo Grass.
