Give this hosta LOTS of room. We bought it as a single, and not much happened the first two years. But the third year it took off. We bought it and Wade & Gatton, one of the great hosta breeders and sellers in the country. Their specimen is ENORMOUS! At least 3 feet tall and probably 4-6 feet across. Rest assured you will get comments from friends and other garden enthusiasts on this monster hosta. Ours is still immature, and we are already being asked for divisions.
