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.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
