Hosta montana

A giant size (28 inches high by 70 inches wide) hosta, this cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Chirifu Oba' which was registered in 2004 by Greg Johnson of Iowa. The medium green leaves are slightly rippled. Near white flowers bloom from mid-July into August on scapes up to 75 inches tall.

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term chirifu as speckled, mottled or overall variegated and the term oba or ooba as large leaf, 'Oba Gibōshi' or H. montana.
