Hosta 'School Mouse'

This non-registered but patented, small size (8 inches high by 14 inches wide) hosta was originated by Hans Hansen at Walters Gardens, Inc. of Michigan. It is a tissue culture sport of H. 'Church Mouse' with wavy blue-green foliage that has a wide creamy yellow marginal variegation. In July, it bears clusters of pale purple flowers but is sterile so does not produce seeds.

United States Patent: PP29559  (2018)
