Hosta 'Sekkei'

This is one of those cases where there are two hostas with the same name. Neither is registered with The American Hosta Society. The first one to be registered would become the "official" hosta of that name and the other would have to be renamed.

Both were listed on the MyHostas Database with one being a sport of H. longipes while the other is a sport of H. sieboldii.

This cultivar was listed on the MyHostas Database website. As a non-registered sport of H. longipes, this hosta should be a small to medium size (6 to 10 inches high with a spread of 8 to 12 inches) with foliage that is medium to dark green, smooth textured and has thick substance. Leaves are very shiny underneath, slightly wavy and have heart shaped bases. It has dense clusters of pale purple flowers with purple anthers borne on 20 to 30 inch scapes in August into September.

We do not know how this cultivar is different from the species form and habit.

This cultivar was listed on the MyHostas Database website as H. sieboldii 'Sekkei'.
