Hosta "Humpback Whale" Review
This long sought after jumbo variety is now in commercial production. Humpback Whale once brought an auction price of $725 for a fund raiser. Plants form a monster size dome of blue-green heart shaped, corrugated leaves. The color is best in cool weather and as the heat of summer sets in the leaves will transition to more of a green. Breed by Mildred Seaver, known in the hosta world as “Queen of the Hostas” she registered 96 varieties in her life time….. A must have!
Plants produce lavender blooms in midsummer.
