Blue Mouse Ear Hosta

The bride and I have a pretty good collection of Hostas scattered among our many flower beds, and in fact we even have an entire bed devoted to the species.

Here is one variety, called the Blue Mouse Ear hosta, that I just fell in love with last year.  It resprouted this spring vigorously, and bloomed last week:

What I love about this plant is the strong blueish hue coupled with the small, delicate leaves, which are about the size a playing card...cut in half.

I have this one planted in my tiny "moss garden" as it seems to be a perfect fit.
