Hosta 'Valley's Chute-the-Chute'

This seedling of H. 'Kifukurin Ubatake' was registered in 2008 by Jeroen Linneman from the Netherlands. The fast growing plant forms a small size (8 inches high by 8 inches wide) mound of wavy foliage with good substance. Its leaves are very shiny on top, slightly rippled. lanceolate and slightly wavy.  It produces lavender flowers but seed set was not known at the time of registration.

The registration materials state: "...color changes to light green"

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term kifukurin or ki fukurin as yellow edge(d) or yellow margin(ed).
