    I highly recommend this vigorous and beautiful Hosta. About ten years ago, this plant produced a delightful sport in my garden that is a solid golden green which has survived and flourished. I have about six divisions now. Not surprisingly, my unnamed sport is more sun-sensitive than Golden Tiara and somewhat less vigorous. Golden Tiara is itself a sport and has produced other sports. (I would have posted a photo of the sport but the format has changed and I no longer see that option.)

    Good, fast growing, edger hosta. I started with 3 (18 years ago), gradually divided them until I have about 25 plants now and they are all robust. Never had any of them revert.

    This hosta is a rapid grower, makes a great edger plant, and also looks great as a mass planting.
