This colossal beauty can stand alone for a glowing focal point. Near-white tubular flowers blushed with lavender climb to 4’ above a giant upright mound of golden-yellow foliage. Can expand to 5’ wide when mature. The best yellow color is obtained if planted in morning sun or filtered shade. Impressive! From renowned Hosta breeder Hans Hansen, this stunning yellow Hosta Age of Gold is a must-have. Hosta thrive in shade, even in competition with tree roots, hurray! It is hard to find a garden that won’t benefit from incorporating some of these versatile plants.

Hosta General Information

Hosta display lush foliage in diverse colors, heights, and textures. Their ability to excel in shade has captured gardeners' hearts everywhere. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Hosta Plant Care

Hosta are generally carefree. Remove the spent flower stalks if seeding is not wanted. (Not all varieties will seed.) Be aware that seedlings are rarely true to the parent plant. Unwanted or damaged leaves can be clipped off at the base at any time. The entire plant will die back for the winter and spent foliage can usually be raked or clipped off easily in late fall or early spring. Can be divided in spring or fall every 3-5 years if desired.
