Royal Standard Hosta is a robust, shade-tolerant perennial plant known for its lush, heart-shaped foliage and delightful fragrance. Its large, bright green leaves provide a stunning backdrop for the fragrant, pure white, trumpet-shaped flowers that appear in late summer. The flowers, which grow on tall stalks above the foliage, attract pollinators like bees and hummingbirds, adding dynamic life to your garden.

Royal Standard 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.
