Hosta 'Golden Tiara' Plantain Lily



Hosta ‘Golden Tiara’ presents a stunning display of variegated leaves with shades of golden yellow surrounded by dark green edges. Bushy and showy, Hosta ‘Golden Tiara’ forms in compact mounds of rounded heart-shaped leaves that produce lavender blooms on slender naked stems held up to 40” above its foliage.

A deciduous perennial, Hosta ‘Golden Tiara’ is easily grown in moist, well-draining soil and in partial to full shade, making it ideal for areas beneath trees or in heavy shade. Smaller than other Hosta species, ‘Golden Tiara’s compact size and adaptability is perfect for a wide array of garden uses, such as along borders or growing in containers. Summer blooms are attractive to pollinators.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
