Hosta of the Day - 'Queen of the Seas'

First, let me say that my hosta 'Queen of the Seas' is not in the greatest spot in my garden.  I had to move it under a tree, as it was turning green (which a lot of blue hostas do if exposed to sun).  I wanted it to maintain it's beautiful powdery blue color through most of the summer.  'Queen of the Seas' has leaves that not only have a slight twist, but also have a pie crust edge and heavily ribbing.  It's a beauty, as long as you can keep it in full shade.
