Plant Features

The Hosta 'Royal Crest' is a beacon of elegance and fortitude in the garden. Boasting lustrous medium-green leaves that are both substantial and shiny, this hosta outperforms many traditional varieties in resilience. Yet, its charm extends beyond its verdant foliage. As summer wanes, it presents a spectacle of large, fragrant white flowers, elegantly rising on 3-foot-tall sturdy spikes. Beyond its aesthetic allure, 'Royal Crest' is well suited for sun-exposed gardens, demonstrating exceptional sun tolerance, especially in well-moistened soils. For those in pursuit of a hardy hosta, it stands out as an unparalleled choice. Royal Crest 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.
