Hosta, Big Daddy


Description: Described as one of the best large blue hostas available, 'Big Daddy' forms a very large mass of thick, chalky blue leaves. The rounded leaves become cupped and puckered when mature. Heavy substance helps to make this hosta more slug resistant. In late summer, near-white, bell-shaped flowers are produced just at the top of the foliage.
