Hosta Old Glory
Heart of Gold
Hosta Old Glory, Hosta 'Old Glory' (PP#12,503), will add color to your landscape foliage with this medium size Designer Hosta from Shady Oaks Nursery.
Hosta 'Old Glory' PP12503 is a sport of 'Glory' and has sweet, heart-shaped leaves with golden yellow centers.
This golden yellow hosta has a 1" slightly rippled, dark green margin. In midsummer, 24" scapes are produced that display soft light lavender flowers.
This fast growing sport of Hosta 'Glory' will take your breath away!
This is a low care perennial and is ideal for shady positions and is one of the most popular for landscapes.
It is best to keep areas around hostas clear of excess leaf debris to reduce the presence of slugs and snails.
It is most at home in well moist, well-drained, highly organic soils with a pH between 5.5 and 7.5. Sandy loam is better than clay because it provides more aeration for the roots.
Plant 'Old Glory' in an area that receives the right amount of light.
The leaves need some morning sun to bring out the best coloration; too much sun will burn the leaves.
This 'Old Glory' Hosta is a very vigorous grower forming three feet wide clumps in a relatively short time.
It is a fairly new hosta and hard to find, so it will be sold out quickly!
