Hosta 'Tattoo' is a revolutionary sport of Hosta 'Little Aurora' that rapidly became the toast of the hosta world. Hosta 'Tattoo' boasts small, rounded, bright gold leaves with a wide, light green border. Each leaf is then "tattooed" with the outline of a dark green maple leaf in the center...a dramatic departure from the typical two-toned hosta foliage. Attracting hummingbirds in late spring, the 18" wide clumps are topped with 10" tall scapes of light lavender flowers. Be sure to get your neighbors talking about your very own Hosta 'Tattoo'.
