This Tardiana-type hosta is
a cultivar originated by
Dr. Ralph (Herb) Benedict of Michigan and was registered on his behalf by Rod Kuenster of Iowa in 2010. It
forms a miniature size (5 inches high by 10 inches wide) hosta
with blue-green foliage. The leaves are broadly ovate, slightly corrugated and
shiny on top with thick substance.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "I've seen this listed as 'Valentine Blue'...No doubt, it
is one of the many descendants of 'Dorset Blue' or 'Blue Moon' from Herb Benedict."
