This small but mighty hosta is a variegated sport of the award winning Hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears'. In spring, the rounded leaves of heavy substance are blue-green with a creamy yellow margin. By summer, the leaves transition to grey-green with a creamy white margin. Incredible substance. Lavender flowers on perfectly proportioned scapes appear in early summer. Miniature hostas are great in shady containers or troughs, at the front of the border or along pathways. Dangerous for collectors who will want to have many more than just one!
