Description / Hosta 'Gold Standard' Plantain Lily

Revealing the exquisite Hosta 'Gold Standard' Plantain Lily, a dazzling herbaceous perennial destined to captivate your garden with its summer splendor. This radiant variety, a delightful sport of 'Diana Remembered', boasts ornamental variegated foliage that adds a touch of elegance to any landscape.

The hallmark of 'Gold Standard' lies in its wide, seersuckered leaves, slightly cupped and adorned with irregular painterly dark green margins. Emerging in a stunning chartreuse hue, these leaves mature into a glorious golden yellow, offering a spectacle of color throughout the season. Midsummer heralds the arrival of funnel-shaped, pale lavender flowers atop 42-inch-tall scapes, enticing graceful hummingbirds to your garden sanctuary.

As a versatile medium to large hosta hybrid, 'Gold Standard' showcases a dense, mounding habit of overlapping leaves, demonstrating vigorous growth and rapid multiplication. Thriving in woodland settings yet remarkably tolerant of urban environments and air pollution, this resilient beauty flourishes in city containers and beds alike. Whether showcased as a specimen plant or nestled among borders, its charm knows no bounds.

Tending to the beauty of Hosta 'Gold Standard' is a breeze, as it thrives in shady to full shade-dappled locations with rich, organic, moist soil. While a touch of early spring or dappled sun enhances leaf color, excessive sunlight poses risks. Ensuring consistent moisture throughout the growing season is paramount, though 'Gold Standard' exhibits greater tolerance to dry soil than most. Come later in the season, allowing slight drying between waterings is advisable, supplemented by a layer of mulch to retain moisture and cool the roots.

In summary, Hosta 'Gold Standard' Plantain Lily stands as a beacon of botanical elegance, enriching any garden with its radiant foliage and delicate blooms. Embrace its effortless beauty and versatile nature, and transform your outdoor oasis into a haven of charm and tranquility. Shop Wayside Gardens for your own piece of horticultural splendor, and experience the timeless radiance of Hosta 'Gold Standard'.
