Thanks, Christine. I'll have to see if they have more.
I think I lost the only Cat and Mouse that I had left and Shady Oaks just can't seem
to produce them.

This is Frosted Mouse Ears....I bought him in May of 2010 from Hosta Direct.
Look at how much this guy has changed. Look at the color change...amazing what growing a Hosta in deep shade does to the colors.

How many mice (?) are there total? I just love them too, but only have a couple. I will plan on starting a collection of them.

CJ, thank you for the great info! Looks like I have some buying to do.

I like the idea of planting them by Cats Eye. How cute.

Christine,

How's your Holy Mouse Ears doing? I've had mine for 3 years and it still isn't any bigger than the first year I got it! How long have you had yours?
