Hosta Little Sunspot
Little Plant Shines
'Hosta Little Sunspot, Hosta 'Little Sunspot', is cute and petite. This small hosta is great for containers or landscape edging.
Hosta 'Little Sunspot' was developed by Briggs Nursery and is a sport of 'Little Aurora'. The small gold leaves are boldly edged with .5" green margins and are slightly cupped.
In midsummer, white flowers with delicate pale lavender stripes, are produced on 16" tall scapes.
'Little Sunspot' is a low care perennial and is ideal for shady positions and is one of the most popular for landscapes. It is best to keep areas around hostas clear of excess leaf debris to reduce the presence of slugs and snails.
It grows well in moist, well-drained, highly organic soils with a pH between 5.5 and 7.5. Sandy loam is better than clay because it provides more aeration for the roots.
Plant 'Little Sunspot' in an area that receives the right amount of light. The leaves need some morning sun to bring out the best coloration; too much sun will burn the leaves.
This charming, brightly colored Hosta can be mixed with other perennials in shady borders, rock gardens or woodland gardens, or used as an edging plant. If you want a showy ground cover, plant ’Little Sunspot’ in mass plantings!
