Is there anything more charming than a hosta? Hosta Blue Elf, Miniature Hosta is an exemplar variety that features wide, flat, heart-shaped leaves in a fun blue hue. When preparing your miniature garden, fairy garden, trough garden, or containers, you will want to have this one on your list. Its leaves reach up to 3-inches across, demanding space to show off their deep color and powdery texture. Pair this plant with others in greens and purples to build a rich color palette for your garden.
Why are hosts so popular? The answer lies in versatility, as these plants fill areas with their broad leaves and noticeable, unique colors, and in adaptability, as they have long been a favorite of city-dwellers. Air pollution is no match for the hosta. This one appreciates regular watering, shady conditions, and well-drained soil. In the summertime, expect lavender flowers to make an appearance.
