A Variegated Hosta with Large, Fragrant Flowers!

The Hosta isn't just about the foliage.
Plant Patent Applied For.

This sport of 'Diana Remembered' adds a charming white margin to the large, deeply-ruffled foliage. The effect is magnificent in midsummer when the white edging is mirrored by the snow white flowers that arise on 20-inch flower scapes. While most Hostas grow tiny, ornamentally insignificant flowers, 'Royal Wedding' boasts 3 to 4 inch blooms that are almost reminiscent of Magnolia blooms and which are, fittingly, very fragrant. 'Royal Wedding' is a brilliant choice for any shady spot. It will brighten up the woodland garden, add perfume to any shady back yard, and it will even fit in a container. The foliage and flower alike are worthy specimens that would fit well in a cutflower arrangement.

The variegated, deeply-ridged leaves arise profusely on symmetrical mounds about 12 inches tall and 20 inches wide. The mound of foliage continues to grow through summer, making an excellent cover for dying bulb foliage. Not to mention the ornamental quality of the spade shaped, cream-and-green leaves!

The flowers come on from mid to late summer, adding beauty and fragrance that will attract a lot of attention! Butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators will be just as eager to get a sniff as you are!

'Royal Wedding' is easy to care for, being resistant to heat, cold, and a whole host of other conditions--just plant it in a well-drained, partly shaded spot, and it will do the rest! These enduring plants are even unfazed by urban pollution! But like most Hostas, their Achilles' heel can be slugs. Though the thick foliage is hard for slugs to eat, it is not yet slug proof. So if you start to see any holes in the leaves, put out some slug bait.

Space plants about 20 inches apart in well-drained, enriched soil, and keep them well-watered, particularly the first year, when they are getting established in their new home. Once established this Hosta becomes very vigorous and easy to care for, shrugging off heat, humidity and cold and keeping its royal bearing! Zones 3-9.
