Hosta Amethyst Gem is a lovely vigorous miniature to small variety forming a 6"-8" high mound, and 12"-18" in width at maturity. It forms a dense clump of glaucous green, heart shaped leaves that carry masses of clear amethyst lavender flowers on 14" scapes, in June. Makes a superb foreground Hosta for the border or a good container plant, especially if mass planted. Before being planted out in the border, like most very smll Hostas, it best grown for a season or two, in a pot to build up a bit of size & root growth, then it should be robust enough to plant out successfully. Not slug resistant or sun tolerant.
