The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...there has been some confusion surrounding the name 'Ginbuchi
Tachi'...at least two plants have been known as 'Ginbuchi Tachi'.
The registered type is most likely the same as 'Chionea' and
resembles 'Ginko Craig'...the plant pictured in Variegated Plants in
Color...is not the same as the registered plant, instead being a
white-margined version of the gold-edged H. rectifolia 'Kinbuchi Tachi'."
This cultivar which was originated by
Kimio Muroya of Japan and is marketed by Mark
Zilis of Q & Z Nursery formerly of Illinois under
the trade name Hosta SILVER STAR™.
Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled,
A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term kinbuchi as gold-edged or yellow edged.
