The inimitable Mildred Seaver's remarkable 'Humpback Whale' is one of New England's legendary plants. For years and years it was never seen anywhere and was becoming something of a myth. Then Charlie Seaver showed up at the 2006 AHS National Convention with a huge multi-division piece of it. He and his mom donated it to the auction and a Battle Royale ensued. The issue was finally settled by a stunning bid for $3,500!
