Descriptions:
=longipes var. aequinoctiiantha Fujita 1976.
Medium large upright mound, broad lance light green leaves, slightly rippled, light lavendar white edged flowers, plume like pendulous scape, unbelievably beautiful.
Dark green species with nicely undulating leaves, petioles are heavily dotted in purple. Rarely offered.
Translated from Japanese; 'Ohigan Giboshi', or the "hosta of the equinox". It grows on rocky ledges and outcrops and blooms during the time of the autumn equinox, September 22nd. Similar to H. longipes but smaller, with thin, papery leaves, fewer veins and more undulated. Medium green, darkening with the season.
Species with slightly rippled green leaves that are lance shaped forms an upright clump and is topped with lavender flowers.
This is the European strain which differs slightly from the US form.
