Hosta of the Day - Seducer

Postby redcrx » Feb 17, 2013 7:47 am

Seducer is a beautiful plant with large colorful leaves.

Hosta Registry - http://www.hostaregistrar.org/detail.ph ... ty=Seducer
MyHostas Database - http://myhostas.be/db/hostas/Seducer
Hosta Library - http://www.hostalibrary.org/s/seducer.html

Seducer has been mentioned a couple of times in this forum's archives:
it may have a "sun-burn" problem - viewtopic.php?f=1&t=53665
and in a topic about hosta that have a thin white line between the center and margin colors (what could be called "a glow" or "lightning") - viewtopic.php?f=1&t=56335&p=485457#p485457

I have had this plant since 2009.
Here it is after it first came in - I didn't realize how big it was going to get:

Here is Seducer in 2010.
In this first photo you see a Bog Laurel bottom right (tiny flowered shrub that can flower spring and fall) with Encore Azalea Princess in the background.

Here it is showing-off its ruffled edge.

Here it is in 2012:

That's Olympic Glacier popping up bottom right. To see other Seducer scenes go to

To show how big the leaves are getting:

Here both the Bog Laurel (bottom right) and Encore Azalea Princess (in back) are in bloom:

One last photo of Seducer in a group setting - I have shown this before in another topic (Olympic Glacier - viewtopic.php?f=1&t=56839#p489201 ) but thought I would add it to this thread.
Here is Seducer left (just starting to flowering), Red October right, with Olympic Glacier between them, Gypsy Rose above RO, Vulcan top right corner:
scene Seducer 12 03011zbz17-6-19.jpg

Along with Azalea left, Bog Laurel, Drops Of Gold Japanese Holly top edge, with some other hosta and other things in there. Can you find H. Boracay buried in there - it's above the Bog Laurel and left of Vulcan.


I tracked down another angle - taken with Vulcan as the center piece.
Seducer is in the top left with Red October mid-left edge, Ultraviolet Light right bottom and white flowered hardy orchids mid-right. The blue one below Vulcan is Blueberry Cobbler with Fall Bouquet to its left.

Here is Seducer today. This plant went into the garden in 2013. The Gone with the Wind, on the left, went in last season. Bridal Falls is on the right and a potted First Frost in on the far left.

One of my Seducer is a lot more variable this season than usual. That's Bridal Falls on the right and Gone with the Wind on the left (tree branch fell on it).

Seducer today - this might be my oldest - looking back through this topic I can see it's the same one I planted in 2009.
