H. montana
'Mountain Sunrise'

This is a tissue culture sport of H. montana 'Choko Nishiki' that was registered by Mark Zilis of Illinois in 1999. It forms a large size (22 inches high) mound of gold leaves that turn green by July. The leaves have a long tip, are moderately rippled and have good substance. In July, it forms very pale lavender flowers.

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