Hosta 'Cat's Eye'

Availability: Out of stock

MINI HOSTA - Maybe the smallest of all the hostas. Very pretty and interesting, Handles some sun. Cover the first year.


A charming little hosta with gold leaves neatly edged in dark green margins creating the illusion of "cat's eyes." Forms a clump only 6" wide by 3" tall. Elongated leaves are topped with tiny, striped lavender flowers much like its parent, H. venusta. "Dan Heims brought this Hosta back from Japan a number of years ago. I think when we translated the words on the tag and they said 'small hosta'. We decided that was not a name and gave it something more fitting." (Gary Gossett)

A beautiful tiny hosta!
This was the smallest TC of 8 I ordered this time. He also had a rough journey to my home b/c he was out of his pot. Even though he's had a rocky start, I'm giving lots of TLC and anxiously waiting for him to settle in and grow.
