The name says it all – tidy, perfectly proportioned tiny mounds of thick, almost rubbery grey-green to blue-green leaves. Flower buds are held horizontally and swell like balloons before opening to lavender bell-shaped flowers in mid-summer. Blue Mouse Ears is an adorable miniature to add to your Hosta collection.
Hosta thrive in shade, even in competition with tree roots, hurray! It is hard to find a garden that won't benefit from incorporating some Hosta.
