Part of the "Sea
Series' of hostas, this plant of unidentified parentage was developed by
Mildred Seaver of Massachusetts and registered in 2004 on her behalf by
American Hosta Society. It is a rapid grower and may be used as a medium
size (18 inches high by 48 inches wide) groundcover hosta. The leaves are
slightly wavy, moderately corrugated and have reddish petioles. Pale lavender flowers appear from late July into August.
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "...one of the brightest gold-leaved hostas in
spring...Is an ideal ground cover in a lightly shaded woodland. Best known for
its seedlings and sports."
A Photo Essay article by Steve Chamberlain in
Hosta Journal (2010 Vol. 41 No. 1) makes comments about
H. 'Deane's Dream', "Bob Solberg registered this cross between 'Blue Arrow'
and 'Sea Fire' in 2000. It is a vigorous blue hosta in the garden. The light
blue leaves hold their color well, at least until the plant blooms."
