This is a true collectors item... certainly the most unique hosta we grow. ' Uzu No Mai' means "dancing eddy"... referring to a whirlpool. The diminutive plants to 1" tall and 3" wide have equally diminutive stalks of lavender flowers to match. H. 'Uzu No Mai' needs to be situated by a stone or in a special container for best effect... guaranteed to get visitors talking... it doesn't look anything like a hosta! This is not an easy hosta to grow and should be tried only by experienced gardeners.
