This plant will grow in my zone:
White bell-shaped flowers rise above the giant, cool blue-green rounded and puckered leaves. Large size makes excellent background foliage for shade gardens. Thrives under tree canopies and covers up exposed legs of aging shrubs. Resists slug damage. Herbaceous.
|Botanical Name:||Hosta x 'Big Daddy'|
|Special Feature:||Dramatic Foliage Color, Shade Loving, Tolerates Acidic Soil, Waterwise|
|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.|
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
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.
