Hosta pulchella 'Kifukurin'

An article by W. George Schmid in The Hosta Journal  (1996 Vol. 27 No. 2) states that this is an "old" incorrect name for Hosta pulchella 'Kifukurin Ubatake'.

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).

There are at least 4 plants with this name but each one comes from a different species including H. kikutii 'Kifukurin', H. longissima 'Kifukurin', H. pulchella 'Kifukurin' and H. venusta 'Kifukurin'.
