Pots and Hosta size question
Good morning. This inquiry is inspired by a post in which dhaven z5 IA wrote (Aug 23):
......As far as size, my mature GE run 31-34 inches tall, and 3 1/2 to 5 1/2 feet across, depending on how much crowding they are getting. . I plan to put a GE in a huge spot all by itself next spring and see what it does in 5 years--I'm guessing it will go at least 6 feet across, although I don't anticipate that the height will be much more than 34 inches......
My question may sound dumb but...for a potted hosta to reach 6' across, does that mean at the base so the pot would need to be 6' across, or measured across the full breadth of the top of the foliage? If it means the latter, (which I suspect) I am wondering how big such a pot might be to accommodate a hosta with that large a diameter? Thank you. From CapeHorn
