The only similarity that this shares with H. nigrescens is the NBA-sized bloom stalk...to 7' tall with light lavender to near white flowers! Giant pointed green leaves and all, this is probably the most impressive large growing hosta (5'+ wide) that I have ever seen...a truly spectacular but unknown selection of a species that deserves to be in every hosta garden!
