HOSTA 'MITO-NO-HANA'—Add to your shopping cart:
1 plant


An electrifying pattern for Hosta foliage! A yellow stripe runs along each vein in the leaves on this H. sieboldii descendant from Japan. Striping fades as summer progresses, with just a few center leaves retaining the yellow veining by early July. Foliage is slightly wavy with a smooth texture; purple flowers in late summer on scapes up to 46" high, forms seed pods. We don't generally stray into poetry in our descriptions, but when this distinctly different variety "swam into our knowledge", we thought of these lines from the poet Keats: "Then felt I like some watcher of the skies, when a new planet swims into his ken."
