Hosta 'Top of Mount Fuji'

Originated by Marco and Joyce Fransen of Fransen Hostas in the Netherlands, this non-registered cultivar is a sport of H. 'Chōkō Nishiki' (formerly H. 'On Stage'). This is a large size hosta with heart shape green foliage. The leaves have thick substance and are moderately wavy, slightly corrugated and dull on top. Pale lavender, tubular flowers with lighter lavender margins bloom in July.

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.
