This is, I believe, the best growing of the Tiara family of hostas. At least mine grows like a weed. It also divides easily and would make a good border plant. It was new to me summer 2007; so I've had it for awhile. Unfortunately, by early August, it was showing signs of foliar nematodes. I no longer remove such plants from my garden because it's a useless endeavour, but I do cut them back and removed obviously infected leaves as soon as I see them. (Of course, by the time you see damage the nematodes have moved on). Please feel free to post your own photos of this hosta.

Grand Tiara is a beauty. It is supposed to be a tetraploid, which accounts for it's sturdiness. I have two nice sized clumps. I actually like the whole Tiara/Sceptre family. they grow well and are a useful size.
