About This Hosta

'Pandora's Box' is a wonderful addition to the miniature hosta collection. It is the smallest variegated hosta in existence. The leaves are the size of quarter and are blue green with a creamy white center. It is necessary to rogue out any green leaves that develop to prevent the plant from reverting to solid green. The perfectly proportioned tiny lavender flowers appear in mid summer.
