Hosta 'Tongue of Flame'
Regular price $20.00
[M] There seems to be some confusion over the proper name of this plant, with various sources listing it as 'Tongue of Flame' and 'Touch of Flame'. Regardless of what you call it, this is Ran Lydell's white centered sport of his streaked 'Searing Flame'. The pointed leaves of 'Tongue of Flame' are creamy-white and edged by fairly wide, somewhat streaky, deep green borders. The white leaf centers hold up surprisingly well through the summer, but I would avoid the hot mid day sun. Hosta 'Tongue of Flame' will form a medium sized, somewhat upright mound with excellent color contrast. The deep, rosy-red flower scapes and lavender flowers add an exciting spark of color.
