Hosta 'Queen of the Seas'
 

A 2001 registration by Mildred Seaver of Massachusetts, this cultivar of unidentified parentage forms a large size (26 inches high by 60 inches wide) mound of heavily rippled, slightly corrugated foliage. It has near white flowers from mid-June into July followed by viable seeds.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "This Mildred Seaver introduction won the "Best of Show" award at the 1997 National Convention of The American Hosta Society leaf show. On one 13" by 9˝" leaf, I once counted 20 small ripples on each half of the leaf blade."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "A layered mound of great architectural beauty...Grow with plain-leaved hostas to accentuate the attractively rippled edges...Won Best in Show Award at the National Convention of The American Hosta Society in 1997... The most dramatic blue-leaved hosta with rippled margins which will stand out in any collection."

Similar hostas include H. 'Blue Piecrust', H. 'Donahue Piecrust', H. 'Grey Piecrust' and H. 'Lake Superior'.
