DetailsOne of the most unique hostas ever- it really looks like spilt milk! The leaves are a glaucous (waxy) blue-green with white that is streaked, misted, and speckled irregularly throughout the leaf. The heart-shaped leaves have a wrinkled, corrugated texture typical of "tokudama" derivatives. One of Mildred Seaver's finest introductions and winner of the Nancy Minks Award at the 1989 AHS convention. A very special hosta!
