Hosta 'Munchkin Fire'

Munchkin Fire Hosta (Munchkin Fire Funkia)

Categories: Herbaceous Perennial

This vigorous new yellow miniature hosta is the perfect size for troughs and the ever-popular fairy gardens. 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.
