Golden Needles

Hosta "Golden Needles" review

The hosta Golden Needles is a new miniature variety that is just adorable. Golden Needles is an improved sport of ‘Silver Threads and Golden Needles”. The plants form a more compact clump of yellow leaves with green streak markings all of the leaves instead of just the centers. The leaves are very thick compared to other miniatures making it very resistant to those pesky slugs. Light purple bell-shaped flowers emerge on 32″ scapes in mid-July.
