Very Large Hostas

Sort by: Product Price Default
Big Bopper
Very Large. An ‘Uncle Albert’ hybrid with large glossy medium green leaves, wide at the base and tapering to a sharp point. A Bridgewood Gardens introduction. It’s kikutii background is apparent from its leaf shape, its deeply impressed veins, and its low spreading habit. Its flower scapes bend toward the ground and are held somewhat horizontally, a trait it inherits from both H. kikutii var. caput-avis and H. hypoleuca., from which ‘Uncle Albert’ is bred.

Blue Angel
Very Large. A huge blue hostas at maturity, with heart-shaped leaves, not puckered but nicely veined. Probably of sieboldiana/montana lineage, but seems to be faster growing and less crinkled than most of the sieboldiana hybrids. Listing an approximate mature size for this plant is difficult, but plants are known to grow 7' and more in width. Even if yours doesn’t break any records, its likely to be one of the largest Hostas in your garden.

Elatior
Very large. Forms a huge upright specimen size plant of shiny green heart-shaped leaves. Very impressive as a background plant. Often listed as nigrescens 'Elatior' because it was considered a form of nigrescens. It is now thought that it is a hybrid of nigrescens, which would make "Elatior' the correct name.

Elegans
Very Large. Huge, rounded blue leaves, cupped and puckered, forming a mound 6' or more across at maturity. Formerly listed as sieboldiana 'Elegans', but now considered to be a hybrid and not a species. This is the classic big blue hosta.

Maggie May
Very large. Forms a very large, somewhat upright mound of arching, heart-shaped leaves, bluish green in spring, dark shiny green in summer. Leaves are slightly downwardly cupped, and nicely rippled. Fun fact: Many will recognize that this plant was named after a Rod Stewart song, but did you ever notice that the name "Maggie May" never appears in the lyrics?

Reflected Glory
Very large. Forms a low spreading mound of frosty blue leaves with irregular gold margins, with slightly wavy edges and prominent veins. One of the last introductions from Mildred Seaver, remembered as the Queen of Hostas. Mildred was known by all in the American Hosta Societ both for the beautiful plants that came from her breeding program and for lively personality. This was one of her favorite introductions. When Mark Zillis published The Hostapedia in 2009 he noted that only 3 people owned this hosta.  Fortunately, one of them, Ken Ziarek, is a friend of mine and he provided me with a plant.  These are divisions of the plant he obtained from Mildred.  They are not from tissue culture.

Sagae
Very Large. The leaves are large and heart-shaped, with wavy edges and prominent veins. They emerge bright green, margined in deep golden yellow, and later turn to a frosty, silvery gray-green while the margins turn to creamy white. For years I've stated flatly that this is my favorite hosta. Fortunately for hosta geeks, there are so many great hostas being introduced every year that I now have to admit that I no longer have a favorite, but it ranks right up there as one of the best hostas ever introduced. It is absolutely stunning. I really believe that if you have a yard full of beautiful plants that includes a mature clump of 'Sagae’, it is likely to be the first plant people point to and say "What’s that?" This is one of those plants that needs a couple years in the garden to look its best. Young plants do not have the wide margins and leaf texture that develops with maturity. Belongs in every shade garden.

Winter Snow
Very large. I think this is the best white margined sport of 'Sum and Substance'. The leaf color can range from light green to gold, depending on the light level, rounded and somewhat rumpled when mature. The white margin is variable, but can be more than an inch wide on older plants.
