This one is stunning in spring an absolute spectacular eye catcher. It does (as do most white centres) suffer from melt out when it gets warmer though. I have heard it's a decent size maker for a white centre, will see how mine gets along next year.

Lovely white seed pods. Are the seeds viable?

OMG Pia, what language are you trying to teach us now :lol: I can understand it, but are you saying that your iPad is autocorrecting your spelling? That has to be terrible when you are trying to type in English and it wants to correct you, so I'll translate here :D

So you thought it was the slowest hosta in the world, it hardy grew for years. Then Hank Zumach told us how many hours of sun his got and wind was in shade for protection.
Moved mine to a lot of Nordic sun and it became a very lovely hosta.
Planted in the right place... One of the best

Back onto the topic, I could never grow Fire and Ice well and have completely given up on it myself. Loyalist survives here, but does not thrive. Some people have great luck with this one in some bright light but also in very wet locations. I'm tempted to move my Loyalist into the swamp where they will get bright light and never dry out.

This is mine 2 years later. A bit larger, but not much.

Normally I cannot come close to the magnificent specimens you colder zoned people can grow in your gardens, but here I am going to brag a bit. Here's mine. It is in a 3 gal pot and getting very overcrowded, so I will have to divide it next spring. I've had this one since 2007, never divided, just up potted as necessary.

2015 - Aug 02. This one gets a LOT of sun this year as we had to take down a tree. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it thrived. In 2012, this was a one-eye division and it's shown a lot of growth. As I write this, it has a huge bud. I'm not likely to get seeds though as it's so late in the season.
