Hosta Blue Mouse Ears
Hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears' is an award winning miniature variety of hosta, and one of our absolute favourites. It soon makes mounds of perfectly formed overlapping blue-grey leaves, over which short stemmed lavender blue flowers appear perfectly to scale, in June and July. As a blue leaved variety it is pretty slug resistant and is ideal in borders, pots and cotainers, or practically anywhere that a miniature statement plant is required. Needs a moist and rich soil, but is hardy and pest resistant, thriving in partial to full shade and growing only to about 15cm high and wide.
