Golden Tiara is an award winning small to medium-sized hosta that is perfect for garden borders and walkways. As it grows the color transforms from green to yellow that fades to a soft creamy color with streaks. Golden Tiara ships as a bare root. We like growing from bare roots because they establish quickly, become twice the size of a potted plant in the first season, and eliminate the need for plastic pots (a win for the environment).
Common Names: funkia, funkias, giboshi, plantain lily
Hosta Companion Plants: Astilbe, Dicentra, Ferns, Geranium, Grasses, Helleborus, Hemerocallis, Iris
Golden Tiara Hosta Plant Care Instructions: Soil should be kept moist during the early part of the season. Once the summer heat sets in, the soil can dry slightly between waterings. In late fall, after frost has turned the foliage brown, it should be cut back to the ground. Roots should be divided every 3-5 years. Early fall or early spring is an excellent time to divide. Spring is also the best time to apply one application of liquid fertilizer.
