Hosta 'Gold Standard'
Large gold leaves with green margins. A classic Hosta, both as specimen and for massing. Takes dry shade. Lavendar bloom appears in August.
Hostas are one of the great garden foliage plants. They produce bold textures in the landscape, and will take try shade. Their large leaves are wonderful contrasted with Ferns, Dicentras, and other fine-textured shade plants. Some form magnificent specimens. All mass well and are rugged and long-lived!
