Hosta ‘Mouse Ears’ is a lovely, small, tidy, clump-forming, mounded perennial with thick, heart-shaped, nearly round, blue-green leaves, resembling the shape of mouse ears. Bell-shaped, lavender flowers bloom on pale green flower scapes rising above the foliage in mid-summer. Hosta ‘Mouse Ears’ prefers organically rich, moist, well-drained soils in partial to full shade. It likes some morning sun and consistent moisture. Once established, it can withstand dry shade. It needs to be sheltered from cold, dry winds. Low maintenance plant, resilient to urban pollution. Slugs and snails may damage the foliage. Toxic to dogs, cats, and horses. Hosta ‘Mouse Ears’ is an adorable, little hosta with cute bluish-green leaves, perfect for miniature, rock and pebble, or shade gardens. Great as a groundcover, for mixed beds and borders, garden edging, under-planting of roses and shrubs, or for growing in containers. Suitable for informal, cottage, woodland, and urban gardens.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
