About Hosta Roots - Big Daddy


Seed Type Root
Also known as Plantain Lily

The appropriately named Big Daddy Hosta is one of our biggest and toughest varieties. The unassuming bulbs produces a plant that is basically maintenance free and slug resistant! The leaves of the perennial Big Daddy Hosta are icy blue in color and have a cupped shape. They produce pale lavender flowers in July for a special touch. This variety is also suitable for planting in containers or tubs.
