Adorable, Silver-Blue Miniature

Hostas are always welcomed additions to the home, but few exhibit the charm and coloring of Blue Mouse Ears.  This dwarf variety features thick, leathery leaves with the slightest, adorable curl.  The 2-inch leaves call to mind cute, little mouse ears (thus the name).  Blue mouse Ears’ foliage is an endearing shade of blue/green that attracts the eye throughout the season and this petite hosta even provides the added benefit of mid-summer flowers.

Dainty bells of lavender decorate the stems that rise up to one foot above the foliage in July, a visual treat as well as a welcome boon for butterflies and bees. 

Your Blue Mouse Ears Hosta is a herbaceous perennial that will grow to the diminutive height of 6 to12 inches high with a one foot spread.  It’s adaptive to a variety of soils and does best in full to part shade.  Don’t mistake its small size for vulnerability though as this little gem has a hardy, easy-care nature.  Plant one in your rock garden or scatter a few amid the nooks and crannies in your landscape that could still use a decorative touch.

It’s easy to see why Blue Mouse Ears Hosta once won “Hosta of the Year”. It simply doesn’t get more adorable than a hosta that reminds people of mouse ears!  Terrific color, a size that fits in almost anywhere and an adaptive nature makes this a must-have.
