'Blue Seer'

The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), says that this plant falls into a group in the H. 'Sieboldiana' species and consists of "registered seedlings that have either 'Elegans' or an 'Elegans' sport (e.g. 'Frances Williams', 'Northern Halo', etc.) as a parent. All of these have blue-green foliage and represent the range of 'Elegans' types that can be found."

Paul Aden of New York introduced this cultivar before 1983 and it was registered in 2010 by Mark Zilis of Illinois. According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), it " impressive for its rich blue-green foliage color, heavy corrugation, and unruliness."

The giant size (30 inches high by 51 inches wide) mound has unruly foliage that is heavily corrugated and somewhat cupped. Near white flowers bloom from late June into July followed by viable seeds.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Large flowers are compacted on the scape."
