Hosta 'Mito no Hana'

A non-registered cultivar from Japan with a Hosta sieboldii background, this plant grows to about 19 inches in height and 30 inches in width. The foliage is slightly wavy and has smooth texture. Its purple flowers bloom in August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...its yellow leaf venation is quite striking, but this characteristic usually fades by early July in mature, garden-grown specimens...has the potential to produce streaked seedlings."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Amime Tachi'.
