Product Information

Hostas are one of the best perennials to grow in UK gardens, forming mounds of attractive foliage that becomes topped with sprays of bell-shaped blooms throughout the summer.

'Blue Mouse Ears' is a lovely variety that will provide your garden with neat bluey-green leaves that form compact rounded mounds. The once the summer arrives, they will produce beautiful sprays of bell-shaped blooms in a delicate shade of purple.

Growing virtually anywhere, and particularly valuable for those awkward shady spots, they are available in a wide range of colours and forms to suit any situation. They are great for filling gaps in your beds and borders, and they also look fabulous planted up in patio pots and containers separately for a more formal finish around the garden.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

They love the sun but will perform just as well in the shade - they're a great choice for planting underneath trees and shrubs in dabbled shade, acting as great groundcover plants.

Supplied as 3 x established plants in 9 cm pots, ready to plant out. Reaching a heigh and spread of 50cm (19.68in).

Top Tips

For best effect, plant where your hostas receive full sun for at least half of the day, but protect from midday sun. This will encourage the best leaf colour.

Care Information

  • Before planting, incorporate plenty of organic matter into the soil. Hostas prefer a rich, moisture retentive soil.
  • Individually knock out each plant from its container. Look at the roots if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the root ball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the football. The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Keep plants well-watered and mulched with well-rotted organic matter.
  • Hostas can be grown in any container in a good, multi-purpose compost. Ensure that they are kept well-watered. Pot-grown hostas should be fed monthly with a general-purpose liquid feed.
  • Protect from slugs and snails.
  • If you find that your hosta is suffering from scorched leaves, move it to a shadier, more sheltered position.
