Cute, cute, cute! This distinctive small hosta is the toast of hosta collectors everywhere. Hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears' is a dwarf, thick-leaved mutation of Hosta 'Blue Cadet' that makes a tight 1' wide mound of small, round, blue-green leaves in a perfectly symmetrical clump. In early summer, short spikes of lavender flowers emerge above the foliage...a hummingbird favorite. You're sure to enjoy this unique and fun hosta in your woodland garden.


Other than clearing away the dead foliage in fall, it should be a maintenance free perennial. Voles and deer are two pests that will need to be addressed if they are a problem in your area.

If you experience hail on your hosta, they can be immediately cut to the ground, and they will re-flush with new leaves. If the hail occurs late in the summer, you may be better off to just leave the foliage intact instead of force new growth when the plant is preparing to go dormant.

Old flower stalks are best removed for appearance sake, although these have no impact on the growth of health of the plant.

Growing Conditions:

Like all hostas, it thrives in light, open shade. It will not thrive in deep or very dry shade.

Because it is so small, be careful where you plant it in your woodland garden, so it will not get overgrown by larger, more aggressive plants nearby.

Natural Impacts:

Bees are the main pollinators for all hostas, and they are great for attracting these pollinators to your garden.
