Hosta 'A Big Splash'

This cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Dorothy Benedict' which was registered by Dr. Ed Elslager of Michigan in 2004. This is a large size cultivar which grows to about 21 inches in height with a spread of around 44 inches. It has streaked foliage that eventually becomes blue-green with a chartreuse to gold marginal variegation. The leaves are broadly oblong to ovate in shape, slightly wavy and have a thick underside bloom. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...exhibits many typical H. 'Sieboldiana' traits, i.e. broad blade shape, many vein pairs, thick substance, and a thick bloom on the leaf underside."
