Gold Standard is a mid-sized Hosta that produces large oval greenish-yellow leaves which will gradually change to golden yellow as the season progresses, bordered by a dark green edge.
Gold Standard will reach a height 20 inches and a spread of 3 feet.Lavender flowers are produced in July
Planting in partial shade is the best position for this Hosta, and sun in the morning is desirable in order to encourage the best colour, however all day sun will turn the leaves a washy white, and too much shade will prevent the centre of the leaves from developing the desired golden colour.
Plant in any moist, humus rich soil, and mulch in spring and autumn to maintain moisture levels. Feed in spring.
We have found that this Hosta is also drought tolerant.
Great for borders and large containers.
