This cultivar was listed on the
MyHostas Database website.
Originated in Japan, this
non-registered cultivar is a self-pollinated seedling of
H. cathayana 'Nakafu'. It is a golden-yellow
hosta which changes to a greenish color later in the
that this could be the same as H. cathayana 'Ogon'
or H. 'Chinese Gold'.
Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled,
A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term nakafu as medio-variegated
and the term ogon or oogon as gold or yellow.
