Description

Petite yet powerful Hosta 'Mighty Mouse' throws everything it’s got into putting on a great show every year. It’s a relative of much-loved Hosta 'Mighty Mouse'—similar in size, gutsy enthusiasm and blue-grey hue, but with the added jazz of vibrant margins which start yellow in spring before changing to creamy-white for summer. This plantain lily produces small leaves and lots of them—the textured, colourful effect this curved and ribbed foliage creates is what makes the compact Hosta 'Mighty Mouse' so surprisingly high impact in a shady spot.  

Plant Hosta 'Mighty Mouse' into various shady nooks and watch as those dull spaces are brought to life each spring with those illuminating green and gold leaves. The leafy display of Hosta 'Mighty Mouse' continues through summer and into autumn, providing a long season of low-maintenance interest, and then the plant will naturally die back and become dormant for winter. This clump-forming hardy perennial grows back every year without fuss, each time with more of those cute little mouse-ear leaves.

Useful information

    • Soak your Hosta 'Mighty Mouse' roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting.

    • Plant your "Miniature hosta" bare roots into temporary pots with a multipurpose compost in spring and grow-on in a sheltered spot outdoors.

    • Choose a pot which comfortably fits the bare roots. Some have a noticeable crown which should be just below the soil surface with any top growth exposed.

    • Plant out into borders or permanent containers in late spring or early summer once in full growth. Choose a position in sun or shade depending on the variety.
