Neutral lmelling On Jan 29, 2005, lmelling from Ithaca, NY (Zone 5b) wrote:

Leaves are 5-3/4" long by 2-1/2"wide. Green margined with a mottled green-chatreuse-yellow center, shiny top and underside surfaces. Flowers early to late August with medium purple flowers that are deep purple when in bud. In Japanese Inaho means "ear of rice." Very susceptible to slug damage due to thin substance.

AKA 'Kisuji' (Kisuji Giboshi); H. tardiva aureo-striata.
