Hosta 'Jolly Green Giant'

This is an historical cultivar which was registered by The American Hosta Society in 1986 on behalf of the originator, Maxine Armstrong of Nebraska. It is noted for its huge, green leaves and the mound grows into a large size hosta about 25 inches in height with a spread of 57 inches. The foliage is slightly rippled at the margins, deeply lobed at the base and has good substance. Pale lavender flowers bloom from late June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...shows a strong resemblance in foliage and flower to 'Fortunei Gigantea' of which it is probably a seedling."
