More Information

Description ‘Mini Skirt’ hosta has everything you love about the classic shade perennial, but now in a small pocket size! This hosta is an ideal plant for small spaces or container gardening, thanks to its dwarf size and colorful, ruffled leaves.

Although it looks fragile, it has a tough disposition and holds up under heat, humidity, and severe weather. It's incredibly easy to grow, making it a perfect option for both experienced and beginner gardeners.  Try using it in urban gardens with other small hostas, like 'Blue Mouse Ears' or 'Sun Mouse.'

Couldn't be Happier with the Plants

The plants were received in tip top condition. Packed so that they wouldn't get bent or broken or lose any soil from the pots. Didn't have to wait long for delivery. Looked at the garden shops in my area for the same plants before ordering them on-line and found they were charging twice as much. Would use this company again without hesitation. Have referred them to several of my neighbors already.

I love these

The shipping was so fast. They were packaged so well. They arrived with clear instructions on care and planting. I ordered several of these and they all see to be growing well.

Skirt Hostas

So pleased with the strength and color of the plant. Sturdy plant. If I would want more plants of any kind, Great Garden Plants would be the first place I would go to.
I recommend this company highly.

Lifeless

Unfortunately when these plants were received they were all extremely dried out and wilted. These appear only now to be showing signs of life. Fingers crossed they will thrive and recover.

Love this plant!

My miniskirt hosta has thrived from the moment I got it. When I saw the picture I knew I had to have it. I wondered though what it would actually look like. We all know that the web and catalog pictures show the best possible specimen. I was thrilled to see that it looked just like the picture. It was a perfect specimen, just slightly less mature than the web picture. The plant is adorable.
