Descriptions:
='Unazuki'.
JN:Unazuki Giboushi = "bowing/nodding-head hosta".
Shiny green foilage, long narrow leaves that arch; interesting drooping scapes.
The "bird's head hosta", so named because of its unusual flowers, resembling the beaked head of a bird, on scapes that are held rather low to the ground rather than upright. The leaves are rather large, bright green and deeply veined, forming a wide, low mound. White flowers.
Gracefully arching, shiny green foliage with long narrow leaves. Well-known for its unusual drooping and meandering flower scapes. Lavender flowers.
Medium-large mound of gracefully arched shiny green leaves, lavendar flowers hanging on scape droop lower than plant making it ideally suited for wall plantings.
