Comments: Hosta 'Frosted Mouse Ears' is a margined sport of the very popular Hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears'. When grown in the sun this hosta has the most dynamic margins, showing multiple colors around the blue-green center, but in the shade the edge will be more chartreuse colored and not quite as showy. Hosta 'Mighty Mouse' is a similar sport that differs by having lighter margins in full shade.
Light: Part sun to light shade. -- Soil: Humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil.
