I started off the week with two miniature hostas, but today I am featuring another big hosta called 'Big Daddy'. I will admit that I bought this one at first just for it's name. It's a very slow growing hosta. It's also one of the slower ones to pop it's nose out in spring. Every spring I think I have lost it, only for it to pop it's nose out late. It has blue leaves that can grow to be over a foot, but the leaves will turn more green the more sun it receives. As you can see from the pictures, as 'Big Daddy' matures his leaves grow to be more crinkly and cupped the leaves become. This is another hosta that has very thick leaves, so slugs are more apt not to eat this one.
