Plant Features

The Hosta 'Royal Standard' stands out with its lush mounds of satiny, medium-green leaves, characterized by their wavy and pointed appearance. These leaves shimmer with a natural gloss and offer remarkable resilience, being both sun and drought tolerant. As the warmth of summer gives way to the crispness of fall, this hosta unfurls its fragrant white flowers. Emerging from lavender-tinged buds, these funnel-shaped blooms gracefully rise on 42-inch scapes, releasing a captivating scent most prominent during evening hours. Bathing 'Royal Standard' in full sunlight enhances its beauty, turning its leaves to a shade of yellowish green. Royal Standard 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.
