A 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. Hosta 'Sun Mouse' shows great vigor and forms a 6" tall x 18" wide clump of thick, slightly wavy golden foliage. Each 3" long x 2" wide leaf emerges a nice gold and holds the color well. The clumps are topped with attractive heads of medium lavender flowers that are held just above the foliage in early June (NC).
Hosta 'Sun Mouse' is a perfect gem to add to the miniature garden.
