H. montana
'Back Light'
 

This is a non-registered sport of H. montana 'Choko Nishiki' that has gold foliage. It is a large size plant about 22 inches high with a spread of around 48 inches. The leaves have thick substance and are moderately wavy, slightly corrugated and dull on top. Pale lavender, tubular flowers with lighter lavender margins bloom in July.

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term nishiki as brocade (rich-colored woven fabric) i.e. something colorful and beautiful.
