This form of H. 'Sieboldiana' came from Japan and was registered by The American Hosta Society on behalf of the originator, Dr. Fumio Maekawa in 2002 and re-registered with new data in 2018. As with others of this type, it forms a large size (20 inches high by 45 inches wide) upright mound with leaves that are slightly cupped, slightly folded, slightly corrugated and slightly shiny on top.. Near white flowers bloom from June into July on scapes 14 inches tall followed by viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "...makes a fine specimen; can get very large...W. George Schmid, in The Genus Hosta, Timber Press, 1991, reduced this hosta from a species to Cultivar status. The registration information was supplied by P. Ruh and is gratefully acknowledged by the Registrar..."

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...comes closest of all H. 'Sieboldiana' forms to the species itself."
