Hosta 'Fire Island'

Beautiful red petioles that extend into the brilliant greenish-yellow leaves that have a flat margin contrasted by the red! Slightly shiny on top, dull underneath, very wavy. The broadly ovate leaves are slightly corrugated with a distinctly ripped margin. Fast-growing. May be one of the best gold hostas, Lavender flowers in summer. Although the intensity of the foliage lessens in the summer, the intense spring effect is more than special. Lavendar flower are produced in midsummer. Best in full shade.
