H. montana
'Shunko Nishiki'

A sport of H. montana from Japan, this cultivar forms a medium to large size mound that emerges late in spring.

According to The Hosta Handbook by Mark Zilis (2000), "...foliage is similar to 'Choko Nishiki', but not as streaky as 'Shuho Nishiki'..."

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.
