Hosta 'Hirao Majesty'

This large size (26 inches high) hosta from Japan was named by Mark Zilis but registered by Peter Ruh in 1997. The foliage is moderately wavy, smooth textured and of thick substance. Large, pale lavender flowers form in abundance on clusters in July. This cultivar is part of the "Hirao Series" of hostas.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas (2009) states: "The floppy, pinched leaf blade cascades downard as does the dense raceme of flowers on a long scape.
