The Q&A Archives: i bought plants at hd and cannot find them at plant library

Question: two plants I cannot find
(1)Euonymus x fortunei 'Silver Queen' Euonymus
(2)forest fire hosta.
I want to add to my plant library to find out details of care. Please advise, thanks, Cara

Answer: Let's see if we can help:
Euonymus japonica 'Silver Queen' is an evergreen with spring flowers. This upright, densely branched shrub has leathery green leaves with creamy white margins. Pink fruits sometimes follow greenish white flowers. Reaches 3 to 6 feet tall and wide. In full sun, keep soil moist. Will also tolerate some shade.

Hosta 'Clifford's Forest Fire' is a sport of hosta 'Sagae', found plant breeder John Clifford. This hosta really speaks for itself. It has beautifully large, heart-shaped leaves of varying shades with frosty blue-green centers and white margins. The leaf production is fantastic, and its growth habit is wider and shorter than 'Sagae', making a compact (but large) clump. As with all hostas, plant in a shady spot in rich, moist soil.

Hope this answers your questions.
