Hosta 'Kairyo Hinsyu'

An article by Akira Horinaka in The Hosta Journal (2006 Vol. 37 No. 1) says,  "A variety referred to provisionally as "Kairyo Hinsyu" is an improved cultivar of 'Yakushima Otome'...It is a pretty miniature hosta that has leaves...[nearly 1╝ inches] long with a creamy white center and a clean and narrow green border. When it is increased, it will be given a permanent cultivar name."

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term otome as maiden, 'Otome Gibōshi' or H. venusta.
