'Humpback Whale' may seem like an odd moniker, but it is perfect for this hosta for several reasons. First, this hosta is MASSIVE and has the potential to spread an impressive 7 feet wide! Secondly, the large corrugated leaves are the same blue-green of the deep oceans which its namesake calls home. Last but not least, each broad leaf features a 'hump' in the middle which causes the tip to dip downward almost like the tale of this great marine mammal right before it sinks back into the depths of the sea. While this over-sized beauty is a grand sight in all seasons, summer brings out a new point of interest: light lavender flowers which attract hummingbirds and butterflies! 'Humpback Whale' does best in part shade and moist soil and is low maintenance and easy to care for. The waves of blue-green foliage will bring interest to any bed in your landscape! You will fall in love with the gentle nature of Hosta 'Humpback Whale.'
