This means that hostas that are commonly regarded as minis by clump size are disqualified by leaf size.
Mini hostas do well in pots or containers. (They still need to be overwintered like any hosta.)Gardening with Mini Hostas

Note from Gretchen:
Looking at a petite design . .
You should not be able to tell it is petite. It should be in such proportion that it looks like a normal design.
It appears the red flower is not petite by just looking at it. This probably would depend on the show schedule as to the type of design.
6 x 6 inch 8 x 8 inch 10 x 10 inch
Design must stay within those boundaries and look like a “regular design.
If this design is using a normal size teacup, this would NOT be considered a petite design.
If this is a very small demitasse cup and the flowers are petite varieties, this would work.
This one flowers look petite but are they? It is hard to tell if the cup is a normal one or not.
Petite or Not???
Miniature Designs, but not necessarily Petite Varieties
