Hosta of the Day - 'Blue Mouse Ears Supreme'

Yesterday, I featured the hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears'.  Today I have one of the sports of 'Blue Mouse Ears' called 'Blue Mouse Ears Supreme'.  Again this is a miniature hosta, and will grow to be about 3-6 inches high and probably about 8" wide.  It has the same heart shaped leaves as 'Blue Mouse Ears' except instead of being blue green in color, it's blue green with off-white streaking.  It also has the thicker leaves which make this hosta both more slug resistent and able to withstand more sun then some other hostas.  This one is not as widely available as the original mouse ears hosta, but if you find it, you will not be disappointed!
