Most gardeners love a plant with big bold foliage. Big Daddy Hosta definitely has the big and bold part. The addition of the unusually blue colored leaves makes this Host a must for any shady garden. The leaves are heavily textured and reach the size of plates. Tall white Flower scapes late in the summer add to the overall size making Big Daddy appear bigger than ever.
Hostas like moist shade and are ubiquitous in a pond side planting or used as a specimen in an Asian inspired plan. There are so many different leaf forms and colors, one is bound to fit into your existing planting plans.Hosta work as container grown plants. The trick to keeping them looking good in a container is to give them room to grow and plenty of watering.
Big Daddy Hosta Care
Hostas prefer an evenly moist, but well drained soil. The soil can be well mulched with organic material to help hold moisture in a drier climate. A neutral to acidic pH is preferred. A slow release, well balanced fertilizer applied as the leaves emerge in the spring is the only feeding this low maintenance perennial needs.
Dividing Hostas every 3-4 years helps the plants remain vigorous growers. The best time to divide depends on the hardiness zone it is growing. Lower zones are better for spring division as the shoots emerge. The higher zones will have more success dividing and replanting in the fall.
Big Daddy Hosta Spacing
Big Daddy Hosta has a height of 34-36 inches and a width of 42-48 inches. When planted in multiples, a spacing of 4-5 feet on center is recommended to allow for proper air circulation.
