Hosta of the Day - 'Alcebana Kikurin'

Postby redcrx » Mar 04, 2013 7:19 am

'Alcebana Kikurin' is a small hosta that looks very similar to a young 'Ginko Craig'.

Hosta Registry - not registered
The MyHosta Database has a variant spelling for a hosta that I think is this hosta:
MyHostas Database - http://myhostas.be/db/hostas/Alcebana+Kukurin

Hosta Library - http://www.hostalibrary.org/a/alcebanakikurin.html
There is another listing in the Hosta Library that may be the same plant:
Hosta Library - http://www.hostalibrary.org/a/alcebanafukurin.html
and this plant is cross-referenced in the MyHosta Database write-up for Alcebana Kukurin.

So after all of that it is a nice little hosta. I have posted flower pictures in the past - viewtopic.php?f=1&t=54849&p=475946#p475946

Here it is in 2012:
