The Hosta ‘Sizzle’ is a sport from an ‘Atom Smasher’ seedling. It is a small Hosta with narrow leaves that are light green with a dark green margin in spring. During the year the leaf centers turn yellow. The leaves reach a height of about 6 inches (15 cm). In the summer the non-fragrant lilac flowers grow on 12 inches (30 cm) high stems. The growth speed is average.

In my garden the leaves start appearing end of February/ beginning of March.
