Magnificent texture, improving every year, on huge heart-shaped leaves.

Best of Show in 1997 and one of the most admired Hostas available today.
A stunning Hosta, 'Queen of the Seas' has been attracting attention ever since it was awarded Best of Show at the 1997 American Hosta Convention. One of the largest and best blues, it is one of the most beautifully textured cultivars ever grown. Magnificent at 2 feet high and 4 feet wide, it is a stately addition to any shade setting.

The large, heart-shaped leaves are rippled, quilted, and nicely pie-crusted, tapering to an elegant point and arising in great profusion on upright, dense plants. In early summer, nearly white to pale lavender blooms arise on 3-foot scapes, attracting hummingbirds. But the foliage is the main focus of attention, adding splendid texture and presence to any setting.

'Queen of the Seas' was introduced in 2001 by Mildred Seaver, and has proven a favorite for a decade now. You will find it easy to grow, long-lived, and effortless to maintain. Like all Hostas, it improves with age, so expect better and better texture with each passing season. Spectacular! Zones 3-9.

Lives up to her name!
Carol Hillestad from PA wrote (June 28, 2013):
Love the scale of larger hostas and Queen of the Seas is beautifully proportioned. Now in its third year here in NE Pennsylvania, it is a vigorous adolescent more than 2.5 feet across and growing nicely into its setting lightly shaded by Carolina rhodies. Great with yellow-green growing partners!
