Hosta 'Amanuma'

A hybrid of H. venusta x H. capitata, this cultivar from Japan was registered by Peter Ruh of Ohio in 2002. It grows into a small size hosta around 10 inches in height with leaves that are slightly shiny on the bottom. Purple flowers are borne in profusion in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Dr. Fumio Maekawa developed it over sixty years ago..."

"Plant is a hybrid made by Maekawa and named for the address of his garden in Tokyo...It is similar to H. nakaiana, but has slightly larger leaves; the ridges on the scape are identical to those on the species."
