Hosta 'Fireworks'

Availability: Out of stock

Appropriately named! Great color and shine, upright form, twisted leaf, striking! Beautiful bloom. One of the nicest new hostas.


A narrower margined form of 'Loyalist'. The leaves are narrow, stiff and stand vertically. Leaves have a creamy white center surrounded by a very dark green shiny margin and some green streaking to the center. Very heavy substance. Light lavender flowers appear on 12" scapes in midsummer. Possibly a tetraploid.

It's a Winner
I purchased Fireworks in 2010 as a TC. In the last 3 years it has won Best of Show two times. It is a slow grower but when it does, watch out!
