A non-registered cultivar from
of Delaware and James Goffery
of New York, it is a hybrid of H. 'Sagae' that grows
into a giant size hosta about 33 inches in height and 70 inches in width. The
leaves are broadly ovate, slightly wavy and slightly corrugated
with thick substance. It blooms in July.
The Hostapedia by
Mark Zilis (2009), "Alex Summers received the
plant...from a friend (Goffery)...a similar
Heinz Klose introduction from Germany that bear the name 'Herkules' and is
also large with bluish green leaves. I am also afraid that the
two have been mixed in the collector's trade."
In Greek mythology, Hercales was the son of the god, Zeus. The Roman name was
Hercules or Kerkules.
