InfoA Hosta longipes seedling from Japan, unlike any other variegated hosta.
Superb specimen plant.
Looks more like a montana seedling.
Seedling from Japan, (possibly H. longipes parentage) - Small to Medium? (10" X 22") The most exciting hosta that I have seen in years, this beauty is streaked bright yellow and green. My narrow leaves have widened the second year but the variegation is just as good. To my delight it is fertile and I am trying to imagine the wondrous seedlings that will soon appear in my seedling flats. It blooms here in June on tall straight scapes, almost H. montana like.
