Categories: , ,


Open Pollination (O.P.) seeds from Hosta Chirifu Oba. Ordinarily, we’ve offered streakers at 25 seeds per packet, but this one is so prodigious we went with 50-seeds per packet for 2020’s harvest, and are staying there for 2021. Basically a yellow-streaked green variety of Hosta montana. Big, bold. Seedlings are said to have only average substance, but there will be streakers in the mix! Great starter streaker seeds, plenty available! See more at Hosta Helper and the Hosta Library.

4 reviews for Hosta Chirifu Oba (Seeds)

  1. Susan Tersteeg (verified owner)

    I purchased Chirifu Oba seeds last year (2021) and was very pleased with the results. The seeds were slow to germinate and the plants slow to start, but once they took off I had some very nice plants. Out of 50 seeds, 35 grew, and out of the 35 I have 25 beautifully streaked plants. I can’t wait for Spring, to see how they will do in year 2.

    Same here as Susan Tersteeg reported. High germination-rate, with the majority showing at least some streaking.
    Very recommended for breeding of variegated hosta!

    I purchased Chirifu Oba seeds in 2021 and germination was good. All seedlings are streaked, some better than others.

    A free package of 50 ‘Chirifu Oba’ seeds was included. Again good germination but there was only 1 streaked seedling. I saved this plus a few of the biggest seedlings for evaluation.
