Hosta longipes
'Nasu Nishiki'

Originated by Katsuyoshi Tanaka of Japan, this non-registered cultivar is of unidentified parentage but has H. longipes in its background. It is a medium size hosta with green foliage that has yellow streaked variegation.

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.
