InfoFirst Look 2010 Mildred Seaver Award (Best Seedling Attendees).
A sensation at the 2005 Cleveland Convention.
Very reddish petioles that spread into the leaves along the veins.
Very impressive.
Arthur has always said that this is his best plant so far in his quest for red-leaved hostas. At the age of 80 he was still working towards those red leaves, and we won't be surprised if he someday names a plant 'Finally'!
