Hosta 'Valley's Tasuki'

J.Linneman 2012 NR.


This is a stable sport from Hosta 'Valley's Future'. The result is a hosta with green leaves with a wide yellow margin (later tuned into white) and white backs.


This Hosta is called after....


As written in Japanese, Ekiden combines the characters for "station" (駅) and "transmit" (伝). This name was coined by the poet Toki Zemmaro (1885–1980), who was head of the Yomiuri Shimbun's Social Affairs Department at the time. The original concept of the race hearkens back to Japan's old Tōkaidō communication and transportation system in which stations were posted at intervals along the road. In the race, each runner on a team runs the distance from one "station" to the next, and then hands off a cloth sash, or tasuki, to the next runner.
