Diane’s Notes: Beginning in 2010 I started adding minature hostas to my collection. This one is a treasure to have . I love the look , the shape of the hosta leaves, and it has a nice mounded habit.. Look forward to seeing how they do and grow next year. Don’t be afraid to try this one, and one more thing.. Hosta Blue Mouse Ears will be ideal for containers.
