Country Mouse is a really cute sport of Bill’s Dress Blue that was developed in Minnesota. It is a miniature hosta that gets no taller than 3 inches. It has a heart shaped blue/green leaf with a white edge. The 15 inch tall scapes of lavender flowers appear in mid-summer and are loved by hummingbirds. Great for rock gardens, containers and woodland paths. It is a good grower and the leaves are on the thick side so they aren’t bothered as much by slugs or sun scald.
