Hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears Supreme'
 

 

This sport of H. 'Blue Mouse Ears' was registered by Bill Silvers of Silvers-Elbert Nursery in Conyers, GA. It forms a small size mound of foliage with thick substance and has pale purple flowers in July.

The Book of Little Hostas by Kathy and Michael Shadrack (2010) says: "Will appreciate some sun. An ideal plant for a trough, container, or the front of a raised bed."

 

 

Warren I. Pollock wrote comments about the many sports of H. 'Blue Mouse Ears' (which he termed BME) in The Hosta Journal (2012 Vol. 43 No. 2). He stated, "H. 'One Iota Supreme' is a streaked form of 'One Iota', occasionally labeled 'One Iota Streaked'. Jan van den Top says the creamy yellow of 'One Iota Supreme' is less bright than the creamy yellow of 'Royal Mouse Ears', so expect this coloring for 'Blue Mouse Ears Supreme' and 'Mouse Tracks' too...Many hosta aficionados think 'One Iota Supreme', 'Blue Mouse Ears Supreme' and 'Mouse Tracks' are the same. However, I'm not aware of any side-by-side studies."
