Hosta of the day, ‘Sun Mouse’

Sun_Mouse-2016-0914s.jpg

Name: ‘Sun Mouse’
Description: thick, slightly wavy golden foliage
Size: small
Origin: Hosta 'Sun Mouse' is a 2016 Plant Delights Nursery introduction...a complex, multi-generational cross involving the popular Hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears', in our quest for a gold-leaf hosta of similar stature.
Flowers: medium lavender flowers that are held just above the foliage in early June
Added to garden: late summer 2016
Notes: A member of the "Mouse-ears" family which is not a sport. It will be interesting to watch. I'm hoping the leaves will become more rounded.
