InfoIt has a little extra special character with its darker flowers, smaller size, and much tighter quilting.
The round, blue-green leaves are strongly ruffled and wavy, like the flowing dress of a seductive flamenco dancer.
Hosta 'Flamenco Mouse' was one of three ruffled Hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears' sports found at our nursery several years ago within multiple batches of tissue culture plants. We grew them on and selected this one for introduction due to its much smaller size over time along with its much darker flowers compared to any other Hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears' sport.
