The Royal Crest Hosta is a distinguished perennial that provides lush greenery and fragrant blooms despite requiring minimal care. Large, thick leaves gently curve to a point and feature pronounced veining. This mounded, hardy plant features sweet-smelling white blooms during the summer. The flowers grow on a tall stalk or flower spike that rises from the center of the Hosta.
Hosta is a versatile plant that can thrive in a variety of conditions. Plant this beauty in a shady corner of the yard, feature this leafy stunner along a fence or foundation wall, or line a walkway. This is a fast-growing plant, and it will be one of the first to emerge in the spring. Butterflies are attracted to the flowers, which can also be trimmed for use in arrangements.
Royal Crest Hosta Care
This cultivar needs full sun to partial shade, although it will perform better in partial shade. Hosta needs rich soil that is moist and well-drained. Water consistently during the first growing season. Established plants can get by on rainfall but help them out with some water during a drought.
Feed the plant using a balanced fertilizer each spring. Apply a layer of organic compost around the base of the plant to retain moisture and give the roots some extra nutrients. Trim back the flower stalks after the blooms fade and cut back all the growth after the first frost. Divide the plant every few years.
Royal Crest Hosta Spacing
The Royal Crest Hosta is an upright, leafy perennial that will grow 25 inches tall and 50 inches wide. Space plants 45 to 50 inches apart to create a consistent row of foliage.
