Kind of Hosta

My wife and I were on vacation and saw a Hosta that had a cup'ed type of green leaf.

Would anyone know the name of that one?

There are several, but the commonest is Abiqua Drinking Gourd. It might have been Love Pat, too.

Go to the and click on the letter "a" for a photo of Abiqua Drinking Gourd, etc. You may be able to i.d. it from the photos.

I've been eyeing Big Daddy, though I keep thinking I really don't want a cupped hosta because it will always full of "stuff" from the pecan trees.
