Hosta 'Miyama Nishiki Iwa'
 

There is an image of this cultivar on the Hosta Library. From the photo on the HL website, it appears to be a small size hosta with green leaves and creamy white marginal and streaked variegation. The petioles are red dotted. This non-registered cultivar was originated in Japan by Fukano

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term iwa as rock, Iwa Giboshi or H. longipes and the term nishiki as brocade (rich-colored woven fabric) i.e. something colorful and beautiful.
