Miniature Hostas from your own garden

They look just like mouse ears! The Hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears' really lives up to its name. The striking miniature Hosta has small, blue-green heart-shaped leaves. Green flower stems with purple flowers emerge above them. The flowers can be grown in the garden or in a flowerpot. You will receive the Hostas bare-rooted in environmentally friendly sugar cane sacking. The roots are shipped fresh from the ground. They are already one year old. This boosts their strength and accelerates their growth. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. Bare-root stock plants grow when it becomes warmer. These are winter-hardy perennials, so they return every year. The flowers bloom in the summer.
Put the Hosta in partial shade. Make sure that the soil around the roots remains moist. But it should never be soaking wet.

Planting+
Hostas are pretty, leafy plants that look lovely in pots or window boxes too. Choose a pot with holes in the base for drainage. A porous pot is best lined with plastic to help retain moisture and then the plant will not dry out quite so quickly. Cover the holes with potsherds or hydro-pellets and add some fresh potting compost before planting your hosta at the correct height. Then fill the pot and press it all firmly in. Water immediately and generously, then stand the whole thing in (part) shade.
If planting your hosta in the garden, dig a wide hole and loosen the soil with a fork. Plant at the correct height - the top of the root ball should come to just under soil level. Fill the hole and heel well in. Water immediately and generously. Hostas thrive in fairly moist, humus rich soil. Improve poor soil with some well-rotted manure.
Care+
Water your hosta regularly and do not allow it to dry out. Hostas are pretty intolerant to drought. Snip the dead flowers stalks out. Bakker advises regular feeding throughout the summer, for good growth and abundant flowering. Hostas are hardy perennials. Cut back all dead foliage in spring and you will soon see the 'noses' of the new shoots appearing. A sunny spot makes the leaves turn a brighter green. Partly shaded hosta leaves tend to retain their pretty blue colour.
Specifics+
Hostas come in many varieties and cultivars with lots of various leaf colours, flower colours and leaf shapes. They also vary enormously in size. The nicely shaped, oval through heart-shaped leaves are often very striking in their colour and sometimes the veins are very prominent too. White or lilac, scented flowers appear in the summer along sturdy and tall stems. They grow high above the leaves and add elegance to this lovely plant throughout the summer.
Hosta is classified under Asparagaceae.
