Hosta 'Kifukurin Akikaze'

This non-registered cultivar from Japan is of "uncertain" parentage. It forms a small size, dense mound of light gold foliage.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "..."Akikaze" is the Japanese name for H. 'Lancifolia'. Thus, the plant should have a gold-margined, green-centered, lance shaped foliage. The small, gold-leaved most likely a seedling of H. sieboldii and is somewhat akin to 'Subcrocea'."

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term kifukurin or ki fukurin as yellow edge(d) or yellow margin(ed).
