Hosta 'Humpback Whale'
Hosta 'Humpback Whale' was as elusive as the sea creature it was named after, but it is finally in wholesale production so we are able to offer it to you. Also (actually correctly) known as 'Humpbacked Whale', it forms a huge mound of blue-green corrugated foliage. Individual leaves mature to 17" long by 13" wide and develop a "hump" in the center, thus the name. In 1996 the plant was auctioned off for $3,700.00, so today's price is a bargain. (Seaver)
