Hosta 'Gold Standard'

Common Name: Hosta

  • An ever-popular, classic hosta; large, ovate leaves have dark green margins

  • Leaf centers emerge light green in the spring and become progressively more gold towards early summer; morning sun will enhance the gold color

  • Pale lavender flowers appear on 30" scapes in midsummer

  • Forms a large mound of foliage, making it ideal as a specimen or in mass plantings

Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.
