Hosta 'Hirao Imperial'

This is a tetraploid form of H. longipes which originated from Dr. Shuichi Hirao of Japan. It was registered by Peter Ruh of Ohio in 1997. It forms a mound of dark, shiny foliage about 12 inches tall with a spread of 38 inches. Pale lavender flowers bloom in September. This cultivar is part of the "Hirao Series" of hostas.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...the foliage is narrower than most H. longipes forms."
