Hosta ‘Fire Island’
This gorgeous small to medium sized hosta 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
- Zones 3-9 Vigorous grower; best in full shade.
