The minis are nice because they take up so little room. You can buy more this way! (Posted on July 15, 2016)

Not only the fact that it's a mini drew me in....it was the color! HostasDirect has a great price for this gem. Mine took a couple years to really get her tiny mouse feet dug in...but now she's doing excellent!! (Posted on July 6, 2016)

I am having a recent obsession with mini's and HAD to have Blue Mouse Ears! She's such a cute addition to my mini garden!!

I purchased this hosta as part of a bundle, these are such a great deal and are a great way to feed my hosta "obsession"!! ;) Don't judge...you all know what I mean!! (Posted on June 27, 2016)

Ordered a few starter TCs and was surprised by the size of these little guys! They arrived a day after shipping started for my zone and went straight outside - they're doing well and look good. (Posted on June 16, 2016)

Can't go wrong by purchasing this little cutie mini hostas. I bought a variety of these mini hostas, including hosta "blue mouse ear." I had ordered a few last year from another nursery, but these mini hostas arrived quickly, beautifully packaged, with obvious care and affection. I immediately planted them in their new home. I'm getting more. (Posted on May 15, 2016)

Fantastic little plants Review by Anne

I bought a bunch of these earlier in the summer to fill in a gap in my shady bed where several overgrown shrubs had been removed. They arrived beautifully packaged, with obvious care (dare I say affection) and immediately took to their new home. I actually got several blooms within a few weeks, even though they were still just wee little plants. The blooms are lush, and stand out more than typical hostas. I'm actually growing them for their blooms more than their leaves. Beautiful little plants. I'm getting more. Have a few more shrubs that will have to go. (Posted on September 1, 2015)

I love this tough velvety little bundle of blue. When I purchased him he was a root w two leaves. Every year the tough little guy comes back and makes me smile. He spreads and matures more each year and that's half the fun. (Posted on July 14, 2015)

Where this is planted is sun-free and it is very happy. It is a little slow growing but is vigorous. This is a very nice blue mini. (Posted on June 23, 2015)
