Hosta 'Fire Island'
Foliage emerges bright yellow and darkens to chartreuse as the season progresses. As it matures, leaves become corrugated with rippled margins. Red petioles retain their color all season. Purple shaded blooms appear in July.
Hostas are one of the great garden foliage plants. They produce bold textures in the landscape, and will take try shade. Their large leaves are wonderful contrasted with Ferns, Dicentras, and other fine-textured shade plants. Some form magnificent specimens. All mass well and are rugged and long-lived!
