About This Hosta

This reverse sport of the ever-popular Hosta 'Patriot' has heart-shaped leaves with wide, pure white centers and dark green margins. The leaves are heavily twisted and form a dense mound of thick foliage. Lavender flowers appear in midsummer. The scapes and seed pods are white. 'Fire and Ice' Hosta provides an excellent contrast in colours.
