Cute, cute, cute! This distinctive, small hosta is the toast of hosta collectors everywhere. Hosta ‘Blue Mouse Ears’ is a mutation of H. ‘Blue Cadet’ that makes a tight 1′ wide mound of small, round, blue-green leaves on a perfectly symmetrical clump. In early summer, the clumps are topped with proportionally short spikes of lavender flowers. This is a unique and fun hosta to add to any woodland garden.
