Hosta 'Kikeika'

According to The Genus HOSTA by W. George Schmid (1991), this is a sport of H. longissima from Japan. Schmid says, "...with deformed and joined flower lobes and, occasionally, petaloid stamens..."

The plant forms a small size (9 inches high by 25 inches wide) mound with narrow foliage which has a shiny on top and bottom. The dark green leaves are narrowly elliptic (strap shaped), smooth textured without waves. It has average substance. Flowers are medium purple in color with purple anthers and are borne from mid-September to October followed by viable seeds.
