Transplanted Miniature Variegated Hosta - June 2019
All the way in the back of our lot is a tree that the kids climb from time-to-time. Back there, underneath that tree was the sweetest little variegated hosta plant that I just noticed late last Summer. By then, it had been trampled by little kid feet. This Spring, I decided to be proactive and get it out of the spot where it was going to be stomped on and move it.
Last May, I picked up two different hosta varieties (Christmas Tree and Fantabulous) and planted them around the large Oak Tree that we have a rope swing hanging from in the yard. If you go check out that post, you'll see that the landscape plan calls for hostas around the tree. So, I figured, I'd take this little hosta and move it to right around that tree.
This photo doesn't really give you a sense for the scale of the leaves, but they're small. And the color of this is quite nice - the variegated edge is yellow, not white. This is one to watch this Summer. If I can get it established in this new location, I'm already thinking about trying to split this up next year and put it in a few different locations.
