Plantain Lily

Hosta 'Fire & Ice'

Broad pure white leaves with dark green margins. This variety produces lavender flowers on white stems.

Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. Plants form sturdy mounds of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This spectacular mid-sized selection has white-centered leaves, with a wide streaky dark-green margin. Pale lavender flowers appear in mid summer. Suitable also for planting in mixed containers or tubs. Hosta go completely dormant in the fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid spring. Easily divided in either spring or fall, but plants may be left alone for years.
