Until a few years ago, this giant hosta from the late Mildred Seaver had not been commercially available. During the 2006 American Hosta Society auction, a single plant of Humpbacked Whale sold for $ 3700. This hosta forms a huge mound of blue-green foliage which turns all green later in the season. Leaves are 17"long x 13"wide, moderately wavy with a "hump"in mid-leaf, broadly ovate shaped, corrugated, and thick substanced. Near white bell shaped flowers are produced on 37"scapes in early summer. The lovely flamboyant lady in the picture on the right is the late Mildred Seaver, a very well know hybridizer from the late 1970's onward.
