Hosta 'Fire Island'

(Brincka 1998)

Clump Size: (M) 34" x 14"

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

Description: Leaves are vibrant, bright yellow in spring changing to greenish yellow in summer. The petioles are red on both sides with some of the red spotting coming into the center of the leaves at the base.

Blooms: Medium lavender flowers in late summer.

Comments: This brilliant yellow hosta really stands out in the shade garden in the spring and the red petioles add very nice contrast to the bright foliage. In too much sun the leaves may bleach out or even burn so we prefer to grow this one in the shade.

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

Zones: 2 - 8
