InfoThis little-known (both the Sea Nymph and this hosta), but easy-to-grow Mildred Seaver hybrid is very distinctive, with long narrow leaves of dark green, bordered with a dramatic stripe of gold down each edge. The vigorously growing and fast multiplying 2' wide clumps are topped in midsummer with 30" spikes of dark lavender flowers...perfect for use as a woodland border hosta.
