Hosta 'Church Mouse'
Hummingbird Icon

Plant Type: Hostas

This hosta can easily be distinguished by its coarsely wavy leaves.  It forms a mature clump of thick, blue green to green leaves and matures into a small, compact mound that is just the right size for the front of the border.  Lavender flowers on borne on 12 inch scapes in early summer.

Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to versatility in the landscape.  Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in the garden 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.
