Blue Mouse Ears Hosta: Hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears' - 1GAL Pot CM Tall
Hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears' is a petite variety with small, rounded, blue-green leaves.
Caring for hostas involves providing them with the right growing conditions and regular maintenance. Hostas thrive in partial to full shade, although some varieties can tolerate more sun. Plant them in well-draining soil enriched with organic matter. Water the plants deeply and regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Mulching around the base of the plants helps retain moisture and suppress weeds. Fertilize the hostas in early spring and midsummer with a balanced slow-release fertilizer to promote healthy growth and vibrant foliage. Remove any damaged or yellowing leaves to maintain the plant's appearance. Dividing the hostas every few years helps rejuvenate them and control their size. Hostas are generally resistant to pests, but slugs and snails can be a common problem. Monitor for any signs of damage and take appropriate measures to control them. With proper care, your hostas will thrive, showcasing their lush foliage and adding beauty to your shady garden or landscape.
