Hosta 'Mighty Mouse'

Hosta

Plant Type: Perennial
MORNING sun/AFTERNOON shade to FULL shade

This small but mighty hosta is a variegated sport of the award winning Hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears'.

In spring, the rounded leaves of heavy substance are blue-green with a bright creamy yellow margin. By summer, the leaves transition to grey-green with a creamy white margin. Incredible substance. Lavender flowers on perfectly proportioned scapes appear in early summer.

This small hosta makes a perfect addition to troughs or other patio containers with good winter drainage.

Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.
