Hosta 'Sugar Daddy'

This is one of those cases where there are two hostas with the same name. One is registered and, therefore, the "official" version of H. 'Sugar Daddy' while the other is a non-registered plant and needs to be renamed to avoid further confusion.

Mark Zilis of Illinois registered this tissue culture sport of 'Big Daddy' in 2003. It forms a large size mound about 19 inches high and 40 inches wide with leaves that are moderately cupped, slightly corrugated with thick substance. The near white flowers bloom from mid-June.

Similar cultivars include H. 'Snow Cap'.
