Plant Features

The Hosta 'Golden Tiara' is an award-winning, compact gem that adds unparalleled elegance to garden edges and walkways. Its dynamic foliage evolves with the seasons, starting as medium green with chartreuse margins that later transition to a golden hue, eventually softening to a creamy shade streaked with chartreuse. This ever-evolving color palette is accompanied by showy, funnel-shaped flowers that vary from light to deeper purple, depending on the sunlight they receive. These blossoms elegantly rise above the foliage on 24-inch scapes in midsummer. Notably, Golden Tiara showcases an exceptional tolerance for drier soils, distinguishing itself from many other hostas. Its fast-clumping habit and persistent color make it a timeless favorite, ensuring a captivating display throughout the season. Golden Tiara is shipped as a bare root, a method we favor for its ability to establish quickly, double in size compared to its potted counterparts within the first season, and omit the necessity for plastic pots—providing an eco-friendly advantage.

Hosta Plant Care Instructions: During the early part of the season, the soil should be kept constantly moist. As the summer heat sets in, allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings. In late fall, once frost has turned the foliage brown, cut it back to the ground. To ensure vigor and prevent overcrowding, divide the roots every 3-5 years. Late fall or early spring are the best times for this task.
