Gold Standard Hosta
Amazing, Unique Color
A classic plant that is popular for its versatility, Hosta Gold Standard is a medium to large Hosta that grows in a mound up to 22 inches tall and up to 36 inches wide.
Features large, round yellow leaves with a dark green margin that varies in width. As the season changes, so do the leaves... starting out light green in spring and turning more golden in summer.
In midsummer, pale lavender-hued flowers bloom up to 30 inches tall, attracting hummingbirds and making an interesting cut flower to add to bouquets or floral arrangements.
Its large mounded shape makes it ideal as a specimen or planted in mass.
Plant Hosta Gold Standard in your shade garden or mix with other perennials in shady borders or woodland gardens. Or, plant in large containers.
Watch out for slugs and snails as well as leaf or crown rot, but otherwise Hosta Elegans are virtually disease and pest-free.
