clausa var. ensata
aka Tsurugi Gibōshi

This form of the species is native to both Korea and China. It was first described by Dr. Fumio Maekawa in the 1930s as a separate species. However, W. George Schmid (1991) revised that classification to a naturally occurring variety of the species H. clausa.

It is a green colored hosta with narrow, lanceolate shaped foliage. Purple flowers bloom from August into September.
