Hosta of the Day - Green Mouse Ears

Postby redcrx » Feb 13, 2016 7:42 am

Green Mouse Ears is an all green sport of Blue Mouse Ears. Same characteristics as its parent.

I have two clumps of this. They were planted on 2009.

Here they are in 2010:

We see these from time to time within batches of Blue Mouse Ears. Normally it would be something culled out of a batch, but they did get introduced and sold so I suspect there was a group of Blue Mouse Ears in tissue culture of these that was so big that it would have been too expensive to just throw them all away. Still, I've had a couple people tell me they like it a lot.
