Hosta longissima 'Kinakafu'

 

This is a sport of H. longissima from Japan which forms a small size plant about 6 inches tall by 18 inches wide. The dark green leaves are only about 1/2 inch wide by 10 inches long with a medial (center) gold to creamy yellow variegation. The center may fade to whitish during the heat of summer. Flowers are medium purple in color with purple anthers and are borne from mid-September to October followed by viable seeds. The Fransen Hostas website indicates that Honda of Japan is the originator.
