In the past the sieboldii species was named Funkia albomarginata and represented by a white-margined sport. Lately it was more properly defined by W. George Schmid. It is a small species that has been very important to the development of new varieties, largely through the streaked sport 'Beatrice', which led to a wide variety of variegated hybrid progeny.
