MINIATURE HOSTAS

The American Hosta Society has adopted the following requirement for miniature hostas:

> Leaf blade area must be less than 6.0 square inches (38.7 sq cm).

There is no restriction on clump spread.

All registered miniature hostas as of 11-30-13 are included on the list below.

Leaf size dimensions (length x width) given below are from the AHS Hosta Registry. In many cases, the registered dimensions are different than those provided in The Hostapedia and other sources. This is because measurements of mature plants from the field have shown that some hostas typically grow larger or smaller than the registration indicates.

For the convenience of on-line viewing of this list, it is broken down into two sections: Registered Miniature Hostas and Unregistered Miniature Hostas.

1 Compiled and revised by Donald A. Rawson on 1/15/17 from the information posted on the AHS Hosta Registry at www.hostaregistrar.org. Section V: Miniature-leaved Registered Cultivars and Species have a registered leaf size of <6.0 sq. in. (38.7 sq. cm). All registered Section V miniature hostas are included on the list above.

2 Registered leaf size, rounded to the nearest 0.1 inch (or the nearest 0.1 cm).

3The registered leaf size for 'Purple Flame Forever' is 9.0 x 6.25 inches. However, these dimensions are incorrect. 'Purple Flame Forever' is a "dwarf-sized mound of gold foliage" (The Hostapedia, page 738).
