Hosta "Blue Mouse Ears" review

A miniature hosta with leaves not much bigger than your finger… absolutely precious. Its easy to see why Blue Mouse Ear was named Hosta of the Year in 2008. A miniature hosta variety with blue-green leaves only reaching up to 8″ in height and 12 inches in diameter. An adorable variety perfect for tucking into small crooks and crannies.
