Hosta 'Jumbo Mouse Ears'

Hugo Philips of Belgium registered this sport of H. 'Blue Mouse Ears' in 2011. It is a miniature size plant about 6 inches in height with a spread of 16 inches. The foliage is medium blue-green, dull on top, deeply wavy and nearly round. Pale lavender, bell-shaped flowers bloom from June into July and it does not set seed.

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, "...Hugo Philips has found an interesting BME sport, 'Jumbo Mouse Ears' registered last year. It's larger growing than BME with leaves having an embroidered edge."
