Hosta 'Summers' Gift'

Originated by Alex Summers of Delaware, this non-registered cultivar is of unidentified parentage. According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "origin: H. longipes latifolia or H. rupifraga background probably out of 'Urajiro Hachijo'...impressive foliage and tremendous flowers..."  It is a small to medium size hosta with dark green foliage that is shiny and slightly wavy. The flowers are pale lavender in color.

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.

There is a cultivar named H. 'Summer Gift'.
