Hosta ‘Sun Mouse’


Miniature Hosta

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.710.520


Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. Plants form sturdy mounds of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This miniature selection features similar leaf shape and performance to H. ‘Mouse Ears’ but with brilliant, yellow leaves that hold their colour well into summer. Soft lavender flowers appear in mid summer. Plant in an area with early morning sun or filtered shade for the best yellow colour. An outstanding Hosta for troughs, edging or the shady rock garden.
