Hosta 'Golden Tiara' has a fast clumping, yet a compact growing habit. It forms a lovely mound of small, heart-shaped green leaves with chartreuse margins that turn gold when grown in more sun. Flowers appear in mid-summer atop tall scapes and are light purple when grown in the shade or a darker purple when grown in more sun. This small-medium-sized grower makes a wonderful edging plant. Voted one of the top Hosta varieties in American Hosta Society polls.

Homeowner Growing Tips: Hostas grow best in moist, well-drained soil with high organic content and slightly acidic to neutral pH. They prefer slightly sandy soil over heavy clays as they need aeration for the roots. Grow in high-filtered or dappled sunlight--they can tolerate morning sun but not hot afternoon sun. Hostas are prone to slugs and deer browsing, though some kinds with thicker foliage may not be damaged as badly. Apply slug bait in early spring before the leaves have unfurled to prevent damage. Divide large clumps, if necessary, in spring when sprouts appear, or late summer. Remove dead foliage from the garden in late fall to early winter.
