Hosta 'Red Legged Plover'

An article by Rick Goodenough of Massachusetts in The Hosta Journal (2012 Vol. 43 No. 1) states that, “Another “borrowed” plant that I have been particularly pleased with is named ‘Red Legged Plover’. I got the seed, which is out of ‘Katsuragawa Beni’ and a first generation seedling of ‘Kokuryu’, through an exchange with Jeff MooreH. ‘Red Legged Plover’ was the only yellow viridescent seedling of the lot. It exhibits some nicer-than-average burgundy-toned flowers which was one of Jeff’s objectives for this cross.”

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term beni as red or rouge and the the term -gawa or -kawa as river.
