HOSTA 'Mildred Seaver'
Hosta, Mildred Seaver Plantain Lily, Plantain Lily
Mildred Seaver plantain lily is a clump forming, shade tolerant, herbaceous perennial that is primarily grown for its ornamental foliage. In spring, it produces a medium clump of large, round, crinkled leaves of dark green with ivory margins. In midsummer, upright, sturdy stems of trumpet-shaped, lavender flowers appear. This hosta prefers part sun to part shade and fertile, well drained soil. It is widely used in mixed perennial borders and massed as a large groundcover for shade. Most hosta are highly susceptible to slug damage.
