Hosta 'Apple Jack'

This medium size hosta was introduced by Dr. Ralph (Herb) Benedict of Michigan. It is a seedling of H. 'Hadspen Hawk' which forms a medium size plant with cupped, blue-green foliage.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Two hostas currently bear this name. The plant I've described comes from Herb Benedict and makes a very dense mound of foliage...I observed another 'Apple Jack' in Ran Lydell's collection...That resembled 'Dust Devil' in that it had a shiny, dark green center and a light margin that turned green in late summer."
