Locally there are a few /many mats of the Miami Upham Giant basjooo lore..
A few plant society members /Miami grads were in the program.
Many of my Hort friends are plant hybridizers with hosta and daylillies.

Are they giant....no
I have a mat....for about 7 years now.

The plants you see in my posts are those plants.

Lots or previous posts

Smile Re: Giant Basjoo.

Create the best possible growing area for this amazing plant. In a large container or in the ground the plant does well.
This plant is a spreader so you must amend the soil in all directions.
Put as much organics possible....
This plant is a three year plant in the north.
First year it sleeps .
Second year it creeps.
Third year it Leaps
