Hosta 'Kishiro-nakafu Hyūga'

This cultivar is a sport of the species, H. kikutii from Japan. This is a medium size (16 inches high by 42 inches wide) medium to dark green leaved hosta. The leaves are shiny and narrow with lightly rippled margins. It forms a "beak-like" bract around the flower buds and bears clusters of near white flowers with purple anthers from late August into September. This cultivar produces viable seeds.

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term nakafu as medio-variegated.
