Hosta Regal Splendor
Upright Hosta with Stunning Blues Edged in Yellow
Hosta Regal Splendor, Hosta 'Regal Splendor', is a stunning sport of Hosta 'Krossa Regal'. It demonstrates the same upright vase shaped habit as 'Krossa Regal', but the frosty blue leaves are edged with a creamy yellow margin. This very elegant looking host provides tall stems of lavender flowers that appear in August.
'Regal Splendor' received the 2003 American Hosta Growers Group Hosta of the Year. Once it has matured, 'Regal Splendor' is definitely one of the most beautiful hostas in the garden!
Hostas grow best in 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. It is best to keep areas around hostas clear of excess leaf debris to reduce the presence of slugs and snails.
Plant this low care plant 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. 'Regal Splendor' is most at home in shady, woodland settings and often works well as specimen or edging plant.
Once the 'Regal Splendor' has matured into its very elegant famous vase-shaped form, it may become your favorite hosta!
