Look at how cute today's hosta 'Illicit Affair' is! 'Illicit Affair' is a miniature hosta that comes up gold in the spring, but as the season progresses the leaves green up except the margins which remain a gold color. It has small heart shaped leaves, and has a great rounded mound form. This is a not a mini that will disappoint, as it's also a vigorous growing hosta. Put this one in the front of your hosta bed or it would make a great hosta for a mini garden.
