Humpback Whale Hosta Starter Plug

(M. Seaver) Giant Hosta Cultivar

Never before offered giant hosta from the late Mildred Seaver.

Hosta 'Humpback Whale' forms an impressive mound of blue-green foliage. The heart-shaped leaves have an unusual hump in the mid-leaf which points the tip of the leaf downward. The blue-green leaves are slightly corrugated and are bluest in early spring. Hosta 'Humpback Whale' will be green by early summer.

This hosta is typically listed as 'Humpback Whale' but Mark Zilis writes in The Hostapedia, he was given confirmation from Mildred's son Charlie that the name was 'Humpbacked Whale'. In any case, it is exciting that this hosta is now commercially available.

At the 2006 AHS convention auction a single plant of 'Humpback Whale' sold for $3,700!

Near white flowers in early spring.
