Hosta 'Twice as Mice'


Originated by Tony Avent of Plant Delights Nursery in North Carolina, this non-registered cultivar is a complex cross including H. 'Blue Hawaii', H. 'Blue Mouse Ears', H. 'Swoosh', H. 'Invincible', H. 'Gemstone', H. 'Sieboldiana' and H. kikutii. It is a miniature size hosta about 5 inches tall by 18 inches wide with thick blue-green leaves that have a wide cream colored marginal variegation. From June into July, it bears lavender flowers on 15 inch tall scapes.

The Plant Delights Nursery website says, "For us, it grows like a vigorous Hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears' with a dramatic edge."
