Gold Standard Hosta
Classic Shade Loving Hosta with Huge Leaves!
Hosta ‘Gold Standard’ is the chameleon of the hosta world. The big leaves (8” long and 5” across) start off in spring deep chartreuse with a mottled green edge. Then as summer progresses the chartreuse changes to golden yellow and finally in late summer will fade to a creamy white. A completely enchanting look for your deep shade garden!
Use these lovely plants to add a woodland feel to your shady nooks or a very modern look to a geometric bed or border. Gold Standard Hosta even does fine in a well-drained container. The big leaves are perfect foils for other shade lovers like hydrangeas and astilbes.
These undemanding plants just need a well-drained soil that gets plenty of water during the growing season to stay happy. (It’s best to water under the leaves, directly on the soil.)
The only pests to worry about are slugs, which feast on the leaves like a buffet if allowed.
Order several Gold Standard Hostas to add a shot of color to your shady landscape areas.
