Hosta 'Enigma'
 

This cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Urajiro Hachijo' which was registered in 2010 by Hugo Philips of Belgium. This small size (10 inches high by 16 inches wide) hosta has dark green foliage with a light green medial (center) variegation. The leaves are slightly rippled, ovate and have purple red striped petioles. Pale purple flowers bloom from mid-July into August.

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term urajiro as white-backed or white underside.
