This fabulous large came out of the program of a "world renowned" hybridizer specializing in large hostas of excellent quality. Only one other person now has this plant, so it is rare and choice!
From the hybridizer - it is intended for use as a hybridizing tool or simply to be enjoyed, it is not to be registered.
GARDEN NAME: Olga's Monster
If anyone is interested in breeding for larges, I'm open to trades.
