Hosta 'Royal Standard'

Common Name: Hosta

  • Large mounds of wavy, green, glossy, pointed leaves demonstrate both sun and drought tolerance
  • Fragrant, white flowers appear on 35-40" scapes in late summer; fragrance is most pronounced in the evening
  • A hybrid of H. plantaginea x H. sieboldiana

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.
