Hosta 'Reiko'
 

This non-registered cultivar of unidentified parentage from Japan has round, streaked foliage that has a white bottom.

An article about H. 'Reiko' by Akira Horinaka in The Hosta Journal (2006 Vol. 37 No. 1) says,  "H. 'Reiko', which has some of the most beautiful leaves I have ever seen...is a medium-sized hybrid cultivar that maintains its coloring throughout the season. It has a large leaf with white variegation. It has been one of the highest-priced hostas, rivaling 'Reiho'...It is a strong grower and keeps its beautiful leaves well into November."

"Plant is a large-leaved hybrid resembling H. montana. Leaf is pruinose, with powdery white on underside. Primary color is green with irregular streaky whitish yellow variegation. Each leaf has a different pattern. Reported to be stable."
