Hosta 'One Iota'

A tissue culture sport of H. 'Blue Mouse Ears', this non-registered cultivar from Jim Anderson of Winterberry Farms in Georgia forms a slow growing, small size (8 inches high by 19 inches wide) hosta. The leaves begin the year blue-green and then change to dark green as the summer progresses. They are slightly cupped and nearly round in shape. In July, it bears clusters of pale purple flowers.

Similar cultivars include H. 'Frosted Mouse Ears'.

Sports include H. 'One Iota Supreme'.

The Hosta Journal, (2008 Vol. 39 No 3), says that this cultivar was named for Jim's wife's dog, Iota.
