‘Queen of the Seas‘ has unknown heritage lines, but is a product of Mildred Seaver. In 1997 it won ‘Best of Show’ honors at the 1997 American Hosta Society convention.
Linneman also has another hosta that used ‘Queen of the Seas‘ and ‘T Rex‘ (Registered in 1999 as ‘Tom Rex’) in a cross to create ‘Valley’s Blue Flush‘.
