Hosta 'Fire Island'. Plantain Lily

Hosta 'Fire Island' is a popular variety of hosta known for its large, heart-shaped leaves with a creamy white center and a wide, bright yellow margin. It is a vigorous grower and can reach heights of up to 24 inches. Shadowland® 'Hudson Bay' is also very low-maintenance and easy to care for.

To grow Hosta 'Fire Island', choose a location in partial shade to full shade with well-drained soil. Amend the soil with compost or manure before planting. Space the plants 2-3 feet apart. Water the plants regularly, especially during the first growing season. Fertilize the plants in the spring with a balanced fertilizer. Mulch around the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.

Hosta 'Fire Island' is relatively pest-resistant, but it can be susceptible to slugs and snails. To prevent slug and snail damage, apply a slug and snail bait around the plants in the spring.

Hosta 'Fire Island' is a versatile plant that can be used in a variety of landscape settings. It is a good choice for mass plantings, borders, and container plantings. It is also attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds.

Here are some additional tips for growing and caring for Hosta 'Fire Island':

  • Divide the plants every 3-5 years to keep them vigorous and blooming well.
  • Remove any spent blooms to encourage rebloom.
  • Prune the plants in the late winter or early spring to remove any dead or diseased leaves.

With proper care, Hosta 'Fire Island' will thrive for many years to come and add a touch of beauty to your garden.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.

Note
Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
