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.
