'Kifukurin Ko Mame' is a sport of gracillima, sometimes seen incorrectly labeled gracillima 'Variegata'. It is a "mini" from Japan, displaying shiny, dark green, wavy leaves with creamy margins. In Japanese Ko means "small" and Mame is "a pea" so the name translates to "gold-margined, very small hosta." A mature clump will be only 3"-5" wide. Flowers are a lovely purple.
