'Fireworks' is a small sport of 'Loyalist' which I've had since spring 2008. It has narrow, stiff leaves that stand straight up and have a creamy white centre surrounded by a very dark green margin and some green streaking to the centre. I've found this hosta to be very slow growing. But last year I decided maybe it was because of the location which was rather dark and dry; so I potted it and it seemed to do better. I dug the pot out of my veggie garden this afternoon and there is growth. I will try moving the post around a bit this year. Please feel free to share your pictures of this hosta.
