Hosta 'Mito-no-yuki'

An article by Warren I. Pollock in The Hosta Journal (2006 Vol. 37 No. 1) says, "There is another Trophy Hosta from the 2005 National Convention of The American Hosta Society auction in Ohio: H. 'Mito-no-yuki'...It sold for $1,800.00." W. George Schmid explained that the name means something like "flower of Mito" which is a city in Japan near where the plant was found...Dr. Doug Beilstein donated the plant which he got from Bette Comfrey of Silvermist Nursery. She obtained it from Toyozo Nakayama of Tenjin Yama Bunen Nursery in Japan in 1995.
