Big Daddy Hosta
Hosta x 'Big Daddy'
|Description||A large hosta with giant, heavily puckered, cool glaucous blue, rounded, cupped leaves. Showy scapes of white, bell-shaped flowers rise above the foliage in the summer. An excellent background for shade gardens. Thrives under tree canopies and covers up exposed legs of aging shrubs. Thick leaves resist slug damage. An herbaceous perennial.|
|Light||Filtered sun, Full shade, Partial shade|
|Watering||Keep soil consistently moist but not soggy.|
|Mature Size||Slow growing; forms foliage clump 2 ft. tall, 3 to 4 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container|
|Design Ideas||Exceptional hosta for massing beneath the canopy of shade trees. Perfect for fleshing out foundation beds under low windows. Popular candidate for sideyards and smaller urban plots suffering from over-influence by multistory buildings. A real standout in large pots.|
|Companion Plants||Coral Bells ( Heuchera); Lungwort (Pulmonaria); Astilbe (Astilbe); Evergreen Solomon's Seal (Disporopsis pernyi); Columbine (Aqueligia)|
|Care||Provide slightly acidic, evenly moist, well-drained, humusy soil. Avoid harsh sun exposures. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge in early spring.|
|Lore||Hosta is the grown up cousin to the plantain weed, which came to America with colonials. It naturalized so easily that Native American's claimed it sprang up wherever the white man walked.|
