Hosta of the Day - hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears'

So far I have featured a lot of very large hostas in my hosta of the day series.  However, today I am featuring a miniature hosta.  'Blue Mouse Ears' is a very thick leaved hosta, which makes it more slug resistent then other hostas.  It features small heart shaped blue green leaves (it will stay more blue with less sun).  This tiny guy usually grows to be about 3-4" tall (maybe more with flowers).  Miniature hostas can be finicky, but this is not one of them.  'Blue Mouse Ears' is an excellent choice for those of you out there who are thinking of starting some miniature or fairy gardens of your own.  It holds up well through most weather, sun, and anything else you want to throw at it.
