Queen of the Seas Hosta
Magnificent texture, improving every year, on huge heart-shaped leaves.
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.
