Probably the most popular gold
Hosta on the market. Gold Standard has large heart shaped leaves that emerge a light
shade of greenish-yellow in spring and then turn golden yellow as the season progresses.
Leaves have narrow dark green margins that frame the shape of the leaves nicely.
It is important when planting Gold Standard to locate it in a spot that receives
that right amount of light. Leaves need some morning sun to bring the rich golden color
out. If planted in to much sun the leaves will burn. Highly recommended.

Hostas prefer partial to full
shade and a good rich garden soil that is moist but well drained. Moisture plays a crucial
role in growing beautiful Hosta plants - you will need to water plants during prolonged
dry spells. Feed in very early spring with a top dressing of composted manure and bone
meal. Liquid feed at least twice during the growing season with seaweed extract or
fish emulsion. For more growing instructions see our Hosta
