Hosta 'Fortunei Variegated'


"The H. 'Fortunei' hybrid complex in its various forms has a tendency to produce variegated sports that occur in cultivation and are frequently found in tissue culture explants. Aside from the well-known classic white- and yellow-margined or yellow-centered forms...a multitude of mutants exist in gardens but they often disappear because many are unstable. Over the years stable forms have been found and named; some of the horticulturally important stable taxa are listed below...Although generally attributed to H. 'Fortunei', most are mutants of H. 'Fortunei Hyacinthina' or H. 'Fortunei Aoki'."

An article by W. George Schmid in The Hosta Journal  (1996 Vol. 27 No. 2) states that this is an "Invalid name (can be several cultivars)".
