One of the most delightful parts of my ever-increasing plant collection are the miniature hosta.  I have gathered these over the years, and now they have been settled in their “bed” for three winters. Here in North Dakota, we often count the seasons by how many plants make it through the winter, and come up smiling in spring.  The mini hosta have won that contest hands down.  They all survive, and reappear to delight and create smiles on all who view them.  They are so hardy and sturdy, despite their diminutive size and presence. Now that they have survived and thrived for three winters, the little hosta are fuller, stronger, and make a more substantial statement of their style and personality,

One of the principal places where I purchase my miniature hosta is Savory’s Gardens in the Twin Cities.  http://www.savorysgardens.com/  They have an excellent selection, and mail out hosta bare root in the spring.  Check out the website!
