|Info||Forming a semi-vaselike clump ultimately about 30" in diameter, P.S. has a "finished" appearance even on a first year clump. The leaves are broadly lanceolate with a gentle arching effect. Color expression is steely blue with a strong patina. Once settled in, the leaves acquire a broadly undulating edge and a distinct "twist" at the leaf tip. One of the most distinctive matters about P.S. is its metallic patina, which persists from early through late season on the heavy substanced leaves.|
Since 'Pleasure Seeker' is a very strong grower, it can and should be placed in a shadier section of the planting to preserve its best expression. It multiplies rapidly, quickly forming a distinctive clump.
Some hostas are a hot splash in the pan. P.S., on the other hand is distinctively serene, with a glowing finish which persists throughout the season. A true specimen.
