Hosta of the Day - rectifolia Nakai

Postby redcrx » Oct 28, 2014 6:42 am

This is a messy topic. There are 4 plants that look the same (in my opinion - rectifolia Nakai, rectifolia Chionea, Rohdeifolia and Ginbuchi Tachi not the big SILVER STAR version).

Registry - not registered
MyHostas - http://www.myhostas.be/db/hostas/rectifolia+%27Nakai%27
Hosta Library - not in the Hosta Library

A note in the MyHosta database says
Probably the same as rectifolia 'Chionea'.


The topic on rectifolia 'Chionea' went into this viewtopic.php?f=1&t=57945

I got this plant in 2010.

Those must be the same plant. I used to have Rohdeifolia and liked it very much, although (as evidenced here) its bloom scapes were just too tall for the scale of the plant. It was lost in our winter varmint (in the storage shed) attack.
