Hosta 'Yoshi-no-midori'

This non-registered cultivar of unidentified parentage was originated by Shinya Fukatsu of Japan. According to an article by the originator in The British Hosta and Hemerocallis Society Journal (Autumn 2019) this is a small to medium size hosta with lanceolate foliage that is blue-green in color. Its petioles are upright and hold the leaves in a vase-shape mound. The flower buds come to a sharp point and the blossoms are light purple with red-spots supported by purplish colored scapes.

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term midori as green.
