Hosta tardiva aureo striata
aka H.
'Tardiva Aureo Striata'

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Plants with this name can be found in many collections and are probably often confused with 'Inaho' and 'Kisuji'. Schmid (1991, p.109) listed this as H. tardiva 'Aureostriata' and stated it to be an invalid name."

Mikiko Lockwood in an article on The Hosta Library titled, A Little About Japanese Hosta Terms defines the term ki as yellow or gold and  the term suji as streak or line.


The hosta shown above was labeled as H. TARDIVA AUREO STRIATA in a display garden.
