Hosta 'Green Mouse Ears'

A sport of H. 'Blue Mouse Ears', this cultivar was registered in 2004 by Emile Deckert of Maryland. It is a small size plant that bears dense clusters of pale purple flowers in July.

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, "Besides BME, there's 'Green Mouse Ears'. It's an excellent grower too and should reach BME size...In 2005, Mark Zilis measured the BME clump in the Deckert's garden. The largest leaf size was 3 1/2 inches long by 2 7/8 inches wide (10 sq. in.). Mound height was 8 inches, width 22 inches. So don't expect your BME and 'Green Mouse Ears' to remain mini size after about five-six years, given good growing conditions."
