Hosta 'Ninkasi'

Registered by Charles Kwick of Wisconsin in 2017, is a small size (10 inches high by 20 inches wide) sport of H. 'Ice Queen'. The moderately blue-green leaves have a variable yellow marginal variegation. They are flat at the margins, glaucous on top, broadly ovate, slightly cupped and corrugated. Near white, bell-shape flowers with small lavender stripes bloom from mid-July into August on scapes about 14 inches high. It sets seeds but their viability was not known at the time of registration.

The registration materials state: "...Leaves have varying margins, mostly yellow with occasional splashes of white...becomes more green and corrugated through the season."

Ninkasi Brewing Company is a microbrewery based in Eugene, Oregon.
