Hosta 'Forest Fire'

This is a case of name confusion in the hosta world. This plant was registered with The American Hosta Society as H. 'Clifford's Forest Fire' but when they were granted a U.S. patent in 2007, it was under the name H. 'Forest Fire'. So, two names for one hosta!

For the information on this hosta, go to H. 'Clifford's Forest Fire'.

United States Patent: PP17644  (2007)

Abstract: A new cultivar of Hosta named ‘Forest Fire’, a sport of Hosta ‘Sagae’, that is characterized by its variegated foliage having cordate-shaped leaves with glaucous green centers and margins that emerge yellow-green and turn creamy white as the leaf matures. A combination of new leaves and mature leaves results in a two-toned effect. The margins of ‘Forest Fire’ comprise about one fourth of the leaf area. ‘Forest Fire’ is a medium-large sized Hosta with an upright, mounded habit, and pale lavender flowers that are held above the foliage in mid summer.
