Golden Tiara is a fast growing small hosta with heart shaped olive green leaves that are bordered with a band of yellow. A mature plant can mound to about 20 inches wide by 14 inches tall. The lavender flowers appear in mass in early June and continue for a long bloom period. Because of its vigor and tidy mounded form it makes a nice edger or mass planted ground cover. This plant won the Alex Summers Distinguished Merit Award in 1994 and the Nancy Minks Award for outstanding small-leaved cultivar. The plant does best in light shade to part sun.
