'Sun Mouse' hosta (Hosta)
Genus:  Hosta

Think of this as the flamboyant cousin of the popular ‘Blue Mouse Ears’ hosta. ‘Sun Mouse’ has great vigor, quickly forming a wide clump of thick, slightly wavy, golden foliage. It holds the lemon-lime color well throughout the season. Lavender flowers appear in early summer, but play second fiddle to the glowing foliage.

Noteworthy Characteristics: 

A vigorous grower, Hosta 'Sun Mouse' will form a tight clump of thick, nearly round leaves. Lavender flowers open just above the foliage in mid summer. Give 'Sun Mouse' a little sun and this little fellow just glows.

Care: 

Hostas will grow in most light conditions, given enough water. The two clear signs your hostas are growing in too much sun or not getting enough water are, browning at the tips of outside edges of the leaves and dull color or faded spots in the leaves.
