Fire And Ice Hosta

|Description||This variegated hosta has slightly twisted leaves that feature white centers and green margins. Creates a wonderful edging in shaded gardens and borders. Lovely lavender flower stalks with white scapes rise above the foliage clumps throughout summer. An herbaceous perennial.|

|Watering||Keep soil consistently moist but not soggy.|
|Mature Size||Quickly reaches 14 to 16 in. tall, spreading 12 to 24 in. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Ground Cover, Edging|
|Design Ideas||Exceptional hosta for massing beneath the canopy of shade trees. Perfect for fleshing out foundation beds under low windows. Popular candidate for sideyards and smaller urban plots suffering from over-influence by multistory buildings. A real standout in large pots.|
|Companion Plants||Fern (Polystichum); Lungwort (Pulmonaria); Coral Bells (Heuchera); Ligularia (Ligularia); Bleeding Heart (Dicentra)|
|Care||Provide slightly acidic, evenly moist, well-drained, humusy soil. Avoid harsh sun exposures. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge in early spring.|
|Lore||Hosta is the grown up cousin to the plantain weed, which came to America with colonials. It naturalized so easily that Native American's claimed it sprang up wherever the white man walked.|
