Go Back Fire and Ice

Hosta 'Fire and Ice'

Plant Type: Hostas

A striking, reverse sport of the widely admired 'Patriot' (Hosta of the Year in 1997). The leaves of 'Fire and Ice' have a heavy substance and a slight twist that creates a sense of movement and draws your eye to their pure white centers and dark green edging. In midsummer, lavender flowers appear on 20in scapes. A midsize Hosta that's showy as a specimen or bedded out in groups.

Light shade with a couple of hours of morning sunlight is ideal for Hostas. They flourish in moisture retentive, humus-enriched soils.
