Hosta of the Day #6 - Mikawa-no-Yuki

Postby redcrx » Nov 14, 2014 11:59 pm

Mikawa-no-Yuki is a hybrid of kikutii x longipes. It is a medium sized hosta with white backed leaves and lateral flower scapes.

Hosta Library - http://www.hostalibrary.org/m/mik.html

To me this plant looks very similar to kikutii caput-avis. On the last page of this topic I have some flower comparisons.
