Hosta ‘Fire and Ice’- A very dramatic small Hosta with slightly twisted leaves that have bottle-green margins and splashes of pure white at the centre giving a very dramatic look, growing to about 0.3m by 0.3m. From early July spikes of funnel-shaped, lavender flowers appear above the foliage. Being a compact variety it will light up a shady spot among ferns and other foliage plants or taller Hosta’s. This one is best grown in shade to dappled shade as the white markings can burn in full sun.
It makes a great container plant!
