It is somewhat sun tolerant, can sometimes be slow growing, and the margin will turn to near white when grown in light sun or bright shade. Hosta 'Frosted Mouse Ears' is a similar sport however that plant starts with a chartreuse margin that lightens as the season progresses while Hosta 'Mighty Mouse' starts out with a creamy white edge right away in the spring.
Light: Part sun to full shade. -- Soil: Humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil.
