Hosta - Fire Island

  • A small to medium sized hosta that is hard to miss in the spring garden
  • Leaves emerge brilliant yellow on red petioles; red coloring extends from the base of the petiole up into the leaves
  • As the season progresses, the foliage darkens to chartreuse, but the red petioles remain all season long
  • The broadly ovate leaves are slightly corrugated with distinctly rippled margins at maturity
  • Lavender flowers are produced in midsummer
  • Vigorous grower; best in full shade
