H. montana
'Paradise Backstage'

This non-registered sport of H. 'Chōkō Nishiki' is from Marco Fransen of Fransen Hostas in the Netherlands. Its leaves are medium green with a narrow, yellow marginal variegation. The large size plant bears very pale lavender flowers in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...emerges late in the spring."

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.
