Hosta 'Hirao Monument'

This hybrid of H. rupifraga was originated from Dr. Shuichi Hirao of Japan. It was registered by Peter Ruh of Ohio in 1997. It forms a medium size mound of light green foliage about 18 inches tall with lavender flowers bloom in September. This cultivar is part of the "Hirao Series" of hostas.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Peter Ruh attempted to register this plant as 'Doctor Shuichi Hirao', but that name was not allowed."
