Hosta 'Miki'
 

Registered in 1991 by Peter Ruh of Ohio and Wm Zumbar of Ohio, this cultivar is a cross between H. 'Hirao Majesty' × H. 'Hirao Supreme'. This large size (22 inches high), somewhat unruly hosta has slightly wavy and corrugated foliage with thick substance. It produces pale lavender flowers from mid-July into August followed by viable seeds.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "This spreading mound of gold foliage makes a statement in any shaded landscape. It was named for a Japanese woman who visited Peter Ruh's collection many years ago."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Site in light shade to retain the brilliant golden-yellow leaf color. Slow to moderate growth rate. Good as a specimen...Some leaves exhibit pleating toward the tip when mature if there is enough moisture available."

Similar hostas include H. 'Alice Gladden' and H. 'Solar Flare'.
