Hosta 'Silver Fox'

Of unidentified origin ation, this small (10 inches high by 24 inches wide) size, non-registered cultivar is a sport of H. 'Ogon Koba'. It is a gold colored hosta with a narrow, light yellow marginal variegation. The leaves are narrowly elliptic, slightly wavy and have smooth texture with thin substance.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...appears to be a sport of H. sieboldii 'Subcrocea'."

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term koba as small leaf, 'Koba Gibōshi' or H. sieboldii and the term ogon or oogon as gold or yellow.
