Hosta 'Helonioides'
aka H. 'Helonioides Albopicta'

There has been some confusion as to the proper name of this small, white margined hosta. It was originally considered a species, H. helonioides but Schmid (1991) changed its status to a cultivar, H. 'Helonioides'.

The Hosta Handbook by Mark Zilis (2000) believes that it is the same plant as the classic H. 'Ginko Craig' while the plant that was sold in the U.S. for many years as H. heloniodes albo-picta is actually H. rodefolia.

This cultivar from Japan forms a small size mound of narrow green foliage with a thin, creamy white marginal variegation. It bears purple flowers in August.
