Liven up the shade under a tree or on the side of your home with Fire Island Hosta. This and other hosta hybrids are grown for their foliage, and with Fire Island, you get brilliant yellow leaves with red speckling on their stems. As summer warms, the leaves darken to a rich chartreuse. These short perennial evergreens are the foundation of any shade garden. Fire Island reaches only 10 to 14 inches tall and about 15 to 30 inches around.

The hosta’s leaves, or fronds, are large and shaped like elongated hearts. Though grown for its leaves, this hosta produces tiny purple flowers on a stem rising a foot or less above the leaves. This easy-care plant performs best in mostly shade in zones 3 through 9, so it is perfect in groupings for shady borders or a mass of evergreen color under trees. For shaded entryways and patios, add Fire Island Hosta as a container filler.

Fire Island Hosta Care

Although your hosta loves shade, it does best in dappled shade, which usually comes from trees. In other areas of the landscape, it will perform best with morning sun for a couple of hours and then shade the rest of the day (typically on the east side of the house). It can grow in average to fertile soil and prefers slightly acidic pH. Adding organic matter to poor or sandy soil can help retain some moisture, which hostas prefer. Mulching around the plants also helps keep water in the ground longer. You also can add some granular fertilizer in spring, but it is best to do so only after testing the soil pH.

Regular watering is important when growing these small plants with big leaves. If you plant a group under a tree, be sure to give them a little extra water because the nearby tree will compete with the hosta for water. The plants need very little care or trimming, just removal of dead or damaged leaves in late winter to prevent diseases. You can remove the flower scape after the blooms fade.

Fire Island Hosta Spacing

These bright little hostas will look great spaced far apart for a mass planting or closer together in a border. Give them some room to grow, spacing them from 15 to 30 inches from center to center.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
