Hosta 'Sea Octopus'

This cultivar is an open-pollinated seedling of H. 'Sea Sprite' and is part of the "Sea Series" of hostas from Mildred Seaver of Massachusetts. It was registered in 1981 as a plant that grows about 21 inches high with a spread of about 43 inches. The green colored foliage has regular ripples which become more irregular as the plant ages. Its foliage is dull on top, moderately corrugated and has average substance with red dotted petioles. Medium purple flowers bloom from August into September.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Though attractive at all stages of growth, the heavily rippled juvenile form is the most desirable and can be maintained by dividing every two to three years."
