Dr. Ralph (Herb) Benedict of Michigan originated this cultivar and registered
it in 1983. It is the result of a cross between
x H. 'Zager's Giant' (aka 'Herbert'). This plant grows
into a medium size hosta
around 14 inches in height by about 45 inches wide. The heart shaped
foliage is slightly rippled, has some corrugation and has bloom
on the underside. Its medium lavender flowers bloom in July.
Similar cultivars include H. 'Brooke' and H. 'Heartleaf'.
