I love me some hostas.
Especially mini hostas.
They used to be called " dwarf " hostas but that term has been discontinued and they are now called "mini" hostas.
In order for a hosta to be classified as "mini" , it must have a leaf size no bigger than 6 square inches.
I'm going to share some of my favs with you today.
Blue Mouse Ears
I actually love most of the hosta in the "Mouse Ear" family.
Pure Heart is in the Mouse Ear Family also.
The other two are not.
But still adorable.
I have not had as good of luck with these Mouse Ear varieties.
But I'm not giving up.
I'm sure eventually I will collect all of the Mouse Ear Hostas.
That's just how I roll....
Mini Hostas can tend to get lost in a garden.
They work best in a garden of all minis or in containers.
Or at the very least , at the front of the garden.
Another of my favorites is Pandora's Box.
Sweet , yes ?
The blue/green one on the left is one of my all time favorites , but it is classified as "small" not "mini",
Here's a close up.
Do you have plants you can't help but collect ?
I'd love to hear about them.
