This cultivar is a
seedling of H. 'Dorothy Benedict' which was registered
Dr. Ed Elslager of Michigan in 2004. This is a large size
cultivar which grows to about 21 inches in height with a
spread of around 44 inches. It has streaked foliage that
eventually becomes blue-green with a chartreuse to gold
marginal variegation. The leaves are broadly oblong to
ovate in shape, slightly wavy and have a thick underside
bloom. Pale lavender
flowers bloom in July.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...exhibits many typical H. 'Sieboldiana'
i.e. broad blade shape, many vein pairs, thick
substance, and a thick bloom on the leaf underside."
