Hosta 'Smokey'
 

This seedling of H. 'Urajiro Hachijo' is a sibling with H. 'Candy Dish' × H. 'Marilyn Monroe'. It was registered by Arthur Wrede of Maryland in 2006. This medium size hosta is medium green in color and has slightly rippled leaf margins. Pale lavender flowers bloom from late July into August.

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term urajiro as white-backed or white underside.
