Hosta 'Munchkin Fire'
Common name: Hosta, munchkin fire hosta, plantain lily
This vigorous new yellow miniature hosta is the perfect size for small containers or the front of the border. Short and narrow leaves hold their bright yellow color all season long. Since the leaves are so narrow, there isn’t a prominent leaf base, and the leaves simply taper to become part of the petiole. Lavender flowers appear above the petite habit in midsummer.
Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.
