This has got to be one of the sweetest most adorable miniature Hostas I have ever grown. I love the tiny blue leaves and the flowers are brilliant too. I have this teeny tiny little guy growing in a pot next to the huge H. Sum and Substance. It not only shows off the strong colours of each but it really accentuates the difference in sizes.

This little one is SO cute. The leaf center color is blue and the appearance is heavy texture. It only gets about 10" tall and 15" wide.
