Abiqua Drinking Gourd Hosta - Two Years Later - September 2023

I planted three Abiqua Drinking Gourd Hostas a little over two years ago.  And today, I still have those same three Abiqua Drinking Gourd Hostas.  You can see all three of them, planted in a row, in the photo at the top of this post.  I bought these based on a post that I read summarizing various cultivars of Hostas that described these as "One of the true giants".   I had visions of five-foot-spread hostas with giant, cupped, blue-green foliage.  

Are they giant?  Not yet.  You can see that.  

But, are the leaves large?  Yep.  I can see a future where they'd be 'giant'.  

The change in two years is large.  Compare September 2021 (here) to the photo above.  

Also, it appears - to my eye - that they're growing when I look back a year (Summer 2022) and count a similar number of lobes/leaves, but the ones come out of the center sure appear larger this season.
