Hosta 'Giantland Mouse Cheese'

Originated by Jeff Miller of Land of the Giants Hosta Farm in Wisconsin and Terry Meyer of Wisconsin but registered by Mark Zilis of Illinois in 2011, this cultivar is the result of a cross of H. 'Blue Mouse Ears' × H. 'Abiqua Drinking Gourd'. It grows into a miniature size hosta about 3 inches in height and 10 inches in width but may get larger as the clump matures. Pale purple flowers bloom in mid-summer.

It is touted as the first gold leaf H. 'Blue Mouse Ears'.
