Gold Standard Hosta
Hosta fortunei 'Gold Standard'
|Description||The lovely, heart-shaped foliage emerges green, then turns golden yellow with a dark green margin, creating a dynamic contrast to solid green foliage plants. Showy, pale lavender flowers emerge on tall spikes above the foliage in late spring. Adds stunning color to a shaded border or woodland garden. An herbaceous perennial.|
|Light||Filtered sun, Full shade, Partial shade|
|Watering||Keep soil consistently moist but not soggy.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; forms foliage clump 2 to 3 ft. tall, 3 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container|
|Design Ideas||This sizable golden Hosta displays green, gold and darker emerald all at the same time. These variations are perfect for massing with only one type of plant. It also has enough height to provide a background for smaller woodland perennials or to fill in between shrubs. Also sufficiently tall to use as a cover along north-facing foundations, edges of terraces, patios and low decks, and to line steps.|
|Companion Plants||English Laurel (Prunus laurocerasus); Ligularia (Ligularia); Azalea (Azalea); Yaupon Holly (Ilex vomitoria); Bleeding Heart (Dicentra)|
|Care||Provide slightly acidic, evenly moist, well-drained, humusy soil. Avoid harsh sun exposures. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge in early spring.|
