This is an adorable miniature hosta. The thick (almost rubbery), round, blue-green to grey-green leaves form a perfectly symmetrical mound with moderate growth rate. Clusters of lavender, bell-shaped flowers are produced on proportionally short 12" scapes in midsummer.Flower buds are held horizontally and swell like balloons before opening. 'Blue Mouse Ears' is perfect for the collector, rock gardens, and does well in containers but prefers light to full shade. 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. This premium hosta variety is part of a group of the finest hostas available today. Members of this collection were evaluated and selected by a group of specialty hosta growers in zones 4-7, who together have a combined total of over 150 years of hosta growing experience. To be considered a premium hosta, plants must perform superbly in all four zones (4-7). They must also exhibit exemplary garden presence and performance, have a long season of appeal in the landscape, have leaves of good substance, and demonstrate a greater resistance to common garden pests.
