Hosta "Big Daddy" review

The Hosta Big Daddy is always one of the best selling blue varieties. Another great hosta that really stands up to its name. Big Daddy is a compact grower with huge chalky blue leaves that at maturity become cupped and grow into three feet tall clumps Big Daddy has great leaf substance and is pest resistant. The flowers are white and bell shaped and bloom in mid June. The large size of this hosta makes it a great background specimen.
