Mishima Fukurin Koba

Hosta "Mishima Fukurin Koba" review

=sieboldii 'Mishima Fukurin'. Stoloniferous. Dark green with orange border. Shiny dark green leaves have a wide yellow border and are topped with lavender flowers midseason. This fascinating little hosta from Japan amazes us more each year. The upright arching clump resembles a small Hosta 'Krossa Regal' in form. Hosta 'Mishima Fukurin Koba' boasts very dark green pointed heart-shaped foliage surrounded by a nice wide rippled creamy gold border. The fast growing 2' wide clump makes a truly unique looking hosta. In case you were wondering, mishima means "three islands" and is a location in Japan, "fukurin" means margined, and "koba" means small leaf. Thanks to our friend Barry Yinger who knows all this cool information.
