Description

The world's largest Hosta! This astonishing hosta is more like a shrub than a perennial!

It will eventually mature to 4-5' tall and spread to 6-8' wide with huge, deeply-veined, green leaves to 28" long by 25" wide. Leaves emerge blue-green in spring, but lose the waxy coating and blue tint as they mature by summer to matte or slightly shiny green.

In mid-summer it is topped with lavender flowers on stem 5' tall! What a glorious sight in a partly shaded garden!

Tip: Potted dormant perennials can be kept in a well-lit cool/cold area (i.e. garage, shed, even in a protected area outdoors) until ready for spring planting. Do not allow them to completely dry out.

Received my order faster than plants I had ordered from another company a week prior! The hostas arrived in perfect condition and healthy. They're only a few stems but I expect they'll get better over the next few years. Looking forward to seeing these beauties grow!
