Hosta 'Royal Wedding' is a marvelous sport of 'Diana Remembered'. This small-medium sized Hosta is a quick grower that forms a lovely mound of glossy green leaves with wide creamy margins. The margins will brighten to pure white as the season progresses. Fragrant white flowers are produced in mid to late summer and are 3" - 4" in size. This variety adds beautiful season-long color with a sweet fragrance to the garden.

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.
