Hosta Sun Mouse Hosta Sun Mouse

Sun Mouse  PP30033 - 6" Tall X 12" Wide

$16.00

(Avent) This bright yellow miniature hosta deserves a spot in the garden, as it will truly draw your eye to where ever it is planted.  The leaf shape is similar to ‘Blue Mouse Ears’ yet a little lower growing with the same vigor.  Hosta 'Sun Mouse' hybridized by Tony Avent holds its yellow color well into summer. Great for planting in troughs, containers and fairy gardens. Plant it in an area with morning sun or filtered shade for best yellow color. Lavender flowers appear in midsummer.  One of the newer "Mouse" hostas.

Cold Hardiness: U.S.D.A. Zones 3 to 9 - Hostas require a minimum of 40 days of around 40 degrees farenheit. Hosta plants tend to grow larger in the North. In the South you may need to be more selective in the varieties of hostas that you choose.
Light Requirements: Partial sun, filtered shade, morning sun. - Most hostas will tolerate some sun if the soil is kept reasonably moist. Morning sun or filtered sun is the best for hostas but avoid mid-day sun as it will burn the leaves.
Water Requirements: Keep soil constantly moist avoiding any areas where water may puddle
Fertilizer Requirements: In early Spring apply a light amount of slow-release fertilizer. Avoid getting any fertilizer on the leaves.
