More Information

Description Delightful and trouble-free, 'Blue Mouse Ears' miniature hosta (Hosta x) brings color to small spaces, containers, or rock gardens! Low-growing, rounded foliage is aptly named and is positively adorable and durable. Soft blue-green leaves get paired with lavender bell-shaped flowers in summer. Plus, with its thick leaves resist damage from slugs, a common pest to hosta. Hostas love the shade; try planting this tidy plant underneath trees with other hostas or hardy ferns. Details Botanical name: Hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears'
Common name: Hosta
Zone: 3 - 8
Sun exposure: Shade (<4 hours sun), Part-sun (4-6 hours sun)
Height x width: 4-6" X 6"
Flower color: Lavender
Foliage color: Blue
Season of Interest: Summer
Bloom time:Summer
Features:Space savers, rare & unusual, rain gardens, heat tolerant, container plants, cold tolerant, best for beginners
Uses: Accent, border, container gardening, foundation planting, massing, specimen, woodland.
How To Grow Soil: Evenly moist, well-drained soils, rich in organic matter, are best.
Light: Part-sun to full shade.
Best in part shade (some morning sun, or sun dappled conditions).
Water: Average. Established plants have some tolerance for dry shade (particularly plants with thick leaves), but soils should never be allowed to dry out. Water is best applied directly to the soil beneath the leaves.
Spacing: 0.75 to 1.00 feet
Fertilizing: Light application of time release fertilizer, or side-dress with compost and organic amendments when new growth appears in early spring.
Winterizing: Foliage should be cut back to the ground in the fall. A 2" mulch after the ground freezes will help prevent heaving, and protect the shallow crowns.
Maintenance & Pruning: Hostas with thick leaves like this one are typically less appealing to slugs than other types. However, if slugs are particularly active in your garden, use slug bait, dishes of beer, or diatomaceous earth to discourage them. Groom plants by removing yellow or dead leaves and cut flower spikes back as they finish blooming in summer.

Perfect for small shaded spaces

The contrasts with other plants of size, shape and color of leaves is pleasing. Flowers bring in spring are pretty with soft color.

Perfect! Exceeded my expections!

I received my first order from GGP today and it definitely won't be my last. I was hesitant ordering online because I've had bad experiences before. The 14 hostas arrived in perfect condition. No broken leaves, very healthy and looking great! I can't wait to plant them. They are much larger than I expected with strong root systems. Great care was taken in how the plants were packaged which provided excellent possible shipping damage protection. Most of the pots have 3 or 4 hostas in each pot. There only 2 pots that have only one plant. Plants arrived in two days. Thank you!!!!

Wonderful Little Hostas

The pots are small ... yes ... but the plants are as bigger than the one I bought from a local green house in a 6" pot. Super healthy (the one in the center and on the right are from GGP. The one on the left from local garden center). They came beautifully packaged and in perfect condition (as have all the plants I have ordered from Great Garden Plants). Thank you GGP!
