Quick Overview:

‘Fire Island’ is a small to medium sized Hosta that is hard to miss in the spring garden. Its leaves emerge brilliant yellow on red petioles. The red coloring extends from the base of the petiole up into the leaves. As the season progresses, the foliage darkens to chartreuse, but the red petioles remain all season long. Its broadly ovate leaves are slightly corrugated with distinctly rippled margins at maturity. Lavender flowers are produced in midsummer. It is a vigorous grower but best planted in full shade.
