Hosta of the Day - Volcano Island

Postby redcrx » Nov 11, 2014 7:44 am

Volcano Island is a sport of Paradise Island - which is a sport of Fire Island so it has longipes f. hypoglauca in its background and retains the red petioles with the red extending up into the front and back of the leaf. The yellow center is really bright early in the season. The green margin is wider than Paradise Island.
