Home of the NO SMALL PLANTS!
We are a bona fide nursery where we grow plants. That means we don’t just pop our plants out of a tray and sell you a liner. Our plants are grown on to a bigger size, many times even to a mature plant!
Humble Hen Farm & Nursery
Height: 10-14 inches Spread: 15-30 inches
Common Name: Hosta
Hosta ‘Fire Island’
- A small to medium sized hosta that is hard to miss in the spring garden
- Leaves emerge brilliant yellow on red petioles; red coloring extends from the base of the petiole up into the leaves
- As the season progresses, the foliage darkens to chartreuse, but the red petioles remain all season long
- The broadly ovate leaves are slightly corrugated with distinctly rippled margins at maturity
- Lavender flowers are produced in midsummer
- Vigorous grower; best in full shade
Info: Our plants are grown in 5.25 x 5.25 x 5.25 inch pots and develop large root systems. These are not a small liner but a plant you can put right into your garden. That means you will get a bigger plant right away compared to a starter plant. We guarantee you will get a true to type healthy plant that you will love for years. If you have any problems or questions we are happy to help. During early spring plants may still be breaking dormancy so they may appear smaller than they will be when they fully leaf out. In Fall or Winter the plants may be dormant which means the may be losing or have completely lost their leaves.
Shipping: We do not ship to Hawaii or Alaska due to cost and import restrictions. Plants will be removed from their pots and loose soil removed and the rootball placed in a bag. We are an inspected nursery from the VA Dept of AG.
