Hosta 'Royal Crest'


Pot Size: 5.25 Inch Square Pot

  • More sun tolerant than other varieties
  • Flowers are delightfully fragrant
  • Large in size

Shiny green leaves of heavier substance and great fragrance are just a few of the awesome qualities of Hosta 'Royal Crest'. It is the next generation of 'Royal Standard'. Large white flowers are produced in late summer and the plant does have some sun tolerance.

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.
