Hosta of the Day #4 - Hyuga Urajiro

Postby redcrx » Nov 14, 2014 10:55 pm

Hyuga Urajiro is a small thin leafed hosta with white backed leaves and yellow streaks that fade. It is a kikutii type.
The Hostapedia notes there is a problem using this name for this hosta - the name implies a plain green hosta H. kikutii leuconata and not this yellow streaked version.

Hosta Registry - not registered
MyHostas - http://myhostas.be/db/hostas/Hyuga+Urajiro
Hosta Library - http://www.hostalibrary.org/h/hyugaurajiro.html
There is a second reference in the Hosta Library with the name reversed
Hosta Library - http://www.hostalibrary.org/u/urajirohyuga.html

This is one of my oldest plants. I planted it in 2008 in a raised bed. It has never gotten very big - probably not enough sun.
In the 2014 I picked up two more - a good sized one and one version that may be a miniature.

Here it is in 2008.

In the 2014 season I didn't get any good photos of the one I have been showing but I did pick-up a bigger one that I kept in a pot.

In 2014 I also picked up my third Hyuga Urajiro. This one has "tiny" leaves.

That tiny one is interesting. Ours has always grown well. One pic is on the rotating slide show on the home page of http://delvalhosta.org (I can't link just the picture.)

By coincidence, I just cleaned about 100 OP seeds from ours and will be interested to see if I get anything interesting.

Did you get anything interesting from the seeds, David? Ed, have you gotten any seeds, and grown seedlings from yours?

For the record, I collected pods from ours and cleaned the tiny seeds. No germination, though. I did use some pollen in crossing with Lightning Flash, I think.
