Aomori Setting Sun is a sport of Tachi Giboshi (H. rectifolia) that Mark Zilis brought back from Japan.

Gorgeous leaves and flowers on those plants. Who sells the Aomori hostas in the U.S.?

Love this hosta! It's still on my wish list, though I'm trying to slow down on new additions. I know Ed is in the states and has this one; maybe he can share where he got it?

I think Josh has them. I think I got some through auction. Since they were a 2009 registration I think other sellers would soon be carrying them.

I think some of them were a little pricey when I got them - just hate the addiction.
