Read the text in the category Hostas for general information about Hostas.

Hosta ‘Teeny-weeny Bikini’ is mini Hosta with an average growth. It is a self-pollinated seedling from Hosta ‘Tsugaru Komachi’. The leaves are long with an irregular green margin and a light center. The center is yellow green at first and later turns to cream. The purple flowers are non-fragrant.

Hostas have not died before in my garden, but this one did not survive the summer. It might be because it needs some sun. I positioned it in total shade.
