=rectifolia 'Fuji Botan'.
=montana 'Fujibotan'.
H. montana 'Fujibotan' is a very rare selection of H. montana that was discovered by Kenji Watanabe of Japan's Gotemba Nursery on the slopes of Mount Fuji.
Often selling in Japan for more than a good used car, we are making you a deal you can't refuse.
The highlight of the small 2' wide green leaf clump is the dramatic fully double lavender flowers... a truly exquisite sight when it flowers in late summer.
Personally, this looks nothing like a Hosta montana, and I strongly suspect that it is indeed another species.
