Descriptions:
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.
