Hosta 'Chichibu-no-Hana Iwa'

There is an image of this cultivar on the Hosta Library. From the photo, it appears to be a medium size hosta with broadly ovate, green leaves and creamy yellow streaked variegation. This is a form of the species, H. longipes, which is a non-registered cultivar from Japan. 

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term iwa as rock, Iwa Gibōshi or H. longipes.
