Hosta Silver Kabitan is a small plant of 6"-8" in height only but with a spread of up to 18" at maturity. The AHS registered this hosta in 1986 under the name Hosta 'Haku Chu Han'. The correct name should be listed as Hosta 'Shiro Kabitan'. Also known as 'Silver Kabitan'. No matter the name, this white-centered form of sieboldii forms a miniature mound perfect for the trough garden. Dainty, striped, dark purple flowers on 28" tall scapes, in late summer. A nice miniature mound of bright white and green foliage. Twisted white leaves with an irregular green edge and very striking variegation. Full shade. Used as a potted plant in Japan. Not particularly sun tolerant or slug resistant.
