Hosta 'Kishiro-nakafu Unazuki'

This cultivar is a sport of H. kikutii caput-avis from Japan. It has shiny foliage that arches and gives a drooping appearance. The lavender flowers are borne from mid-August into September on long drooping scapes.

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