Hosta 'Dubuque Star'

This seedling of H. 'Chōkō Nishiki' is a non-registered cultivar from Jim Husemann of Iowa. It forms a medium size plant about 15 inches high with a spread of 30 inches. The bright gold foliage is wavy and slightly corrugated.

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.
