Hosta 'Frank Gehry'

Hosta 'Big Daddy' aka 'Frank Gehry'

Last week I was in Montreal visiting Michel. In his garden was lovely this big Hosta caught my eye, it's not the biggest in this garden, H. nigrescens 'Eliator' is by far the largest, but this other, we think it's H.'Big Daddy' looks like it might have been designed by Frank Gehry.

A truly magnificent Hosta for sure. I have the plain Jane H. nigrescens, a wonderful blue grey vase shaped specimen that to this day remains my personal favourite. H 'Big Daddy' is a customer favourite here!

Hi Barry,

Michel has H. nigrescens also, and I agree that it's a fine plant.
Are you familiar with Les Jardins Osiris? It's a great source for Hosta as well as Peony and native plants. It's well worth a visit if you're in the Montreal area.

Hi Brenda,

Yes, it certainly looks like it's the work of some great architect. And I don't mean Great Architect either.
