This new introduction from one of the world's top hosta breeders Don Dean is essentially a small-leafed H. 'Fortunei Aureomarginata'. Each 30" wide, perfectly formed clump is composed of small, shiny, dark green, heart-shaped leaves, each surrounded by a perfectly placed, creamy gold margin. In midsummer, the clumps are topped with light lavender flowers atop 20" scapes...just delightful!
