Bright Chartreuse in a Small Package Hosta Fire Island, Hosta 'Fire Island', extends into the base of the leaves for a wonderful contrast. In the summer, the foliage darkens to chartreuse. Hosta 'Fire Island' is a vigorous grower that shows best in full shade. These small hostas have a very striking appearance! Although the intensity of the foliage lessens into the summer, the intense spring effect more than earns its keep in the garden. Lavender blooms top the clump in summer. This low care perennial is ideal for shady positions. Hostas grow best in moist, well-drained, highly organic soils with a pH between 5.5 and 7.5. Sandy loam is better than clay because it provides more aeration for the roots. High-filtered or dappled sunlight is necessary for clean, healthy growth. Morning sun is tolerable and will help to intensify the leaf colors, but hot afternoon sun is usually deadly to hostas. They are most at home in shady, woodland settings and often work well as specimen or edging plants. *Bright Yellow Green Foliage All Summer *Lavender Flowers *Small Hosta
