    That is the bloom stalk it should get flowers on it when it is about 1 1/2 - 2 ft tall

    looks like a sport - a shoot that is different than the mother plant, would be great if you could remove it and root it. Could be a new variety of miniature.

    I'm not sure we can safely say "what" it is until we know where it's coming from. Beth, is it independently growing directly from the ground? Or, is it emerging from a different hosta plant?

    It does look like stress growth especially with the minimal growth around it.

    Karen, it is definitely growing in the middle of hosta leaves. It is part of the hosta plant. The leaves below it are a small cluster next to the main hosta. This is the 3rd year I have had it. It came from a nursery.

    That's cool looking. I have never seen a hosta do that.
