This 'Fortunei' type cultivar
been around for a very long time. It was registered by
The American Hosta Society in 1986 as H. fortunei 'Aoki' but the name has been
changed after the monograph,
The Genus Hosta by W. George Schmid (1991), determined that
there really was no species called H. fortunei.
'Aoki' forms a large
size clump about 21 inches high with a spread of about 52 inches in width. The dark green to
bluish green leaves have average substance and are not wavy or
corrugated. Funnel shaped, pale lavender flowers are borne in
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...virtually indistinguishable
from 'Fortunei Hyacinthina'."
