Hosta 'Mouse Tracks'
 

This cultivar is a sport of H. 'Mighty Mouse' which was registered by  Walters Gardens, Inc. of Michigan in 2009. It forms a miniature size plant about 5 inches high with a spread of only 6 inches. The foliage is light blue-green with creamy yellow to creamy white streaked variegation. Its leaves are broadly ovate, moderately flat and dull on top. Purple flowers in dense clusters bloom from June into 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, "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."
