Hosta 'Paradise Island'

(Fransen NR)

Clump Size: (M) 30" x 14"

Leaf Size: 6.5" x 4.5" -- Vein Pairs: 7 - 8

Description: Leaves are vibrant, bright yellow in spring with a nice green edge. The petioles are bright red with some of the red color coming up into the base of each leaf. (PP#20798)

Blooms: Attractive medium lavender flowers in late summer.

Comments: Hosta 'Paradise Island' is a fantastic green edged sport of Hosta 'Fire Island'. it has a green edge all year long but emerges brilliant yellow in the center which turns to a chartreuse green later in summer. It holds up extremely well through the season and is more tolerant of different garden conditions compared to its parent. We highly recommend this hosta plant.

Light: Light shade to full shade. -- Soil: Humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil.

Related Plants: Fire Island, Island Breeze, Volcano Island

    The color on this Hosta is beautiful, a little slow to get going, but it is so bright and eye catching its worth the wait. I have mine near Stirfry. Great red petioles also.
