H. montana
'Hida-no-hana'
 

This non-registered sport of the species, H. montana, was found in the wild in Japan by Masaru Sakurai. It grows into a large size mound with ovate leaves that are often green streaked and are distinctly wavy. It bears very pale lavender flowers from late June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Hida is the area where Mr. Sakurai found this plant growing. With the word "hana" meaning flower, it translates to "flower of Hida"."
