Hosta 'Big Sam'

Minnie Klopping of Nebraska introduced this giant size (36 inches high by 48 inches wide), green hosta with rippled leaves in the 1960s and it was registered on her behalf by Peter Ruh of Ohio in 1986. It was a seedling of H. 'Fortunei Gigantea' and bore pale lavender flowers from late June into July.

"Plant has typical H. montana leaves with crispate margins." Schmid says it is a hybrid of H. montana × H. 'Sieboldiana' and that it has fertile, white, bell shaped flowers.
