Kisuji

Hard to get a good picture of this one. The streaking stays all season but does become a tad bit darker. In spring it is just spectacular.

Kisuji, (a.k.a. Inaho), has never produced a viable seed for me; I'm not sure I even had a seed pod. I've had it for about 3 or 4 years.
It's smaller than Geisha, a.k.a Ani Machi.

There is "debate" on Kisuji and Inaho being the same plant. Zilis's Hostapedia notes that their anthers are different. Inaho has purple anthers while Kisuji has yellow anthers. He references Schmid 1991 for the yellow anthers point. I have misplaced my Schmid so I can't track the reference at this time.

See topic viewtopic.php?f=1&t=55625 for more discussion.

I have both Kisiji and Inaho in my garden (at least that's what I ordered and was on the labels). Both plants look the same and both have purple anthers.

Here is Kisiji in my garden. It came in in 2010 as two pieces so I put them in two different spots.

Finally tracked down the "yellow anthers" reference in Schmit. In Schmit's discussion, under a different name "sieboldii f. mediopicta", he equates it to Kisuji and mentions the yellow anthers.

In Zilis' "The Hostapedia" there is even another name for Kisuji - "H. tardiva aureo-striata:
MyHostas Database reference & MyHostas Database reference

Browsing the WEB most sites seem to equate Kisuji and Inaho. One site mentioned all three names sieboldii f. mediopicta, Kisuji and Inaho as the same.

Another WEB site introduced another name - Frühlingsgold also see the MyHostas Database reference. But this just may be a green edged stabilized form.
