This very large hosta may be best utilized as a specimen or large clump planting in shady locations in the woodland garden, perennial border or naturalized area. It is also effective planted on a slope where it can help reduce soil erosion.
Although slugs and snails can be significant problems, and leaf spot and crown rot lesser problems, hostas are otherwise virtually disease and pest-free, and are ideal, low-maintenance garden perennials.
