Bob Axmear, this non-registered cultivar is a sport of H. 'Gray
Cole' has blue-green foliage with creamy white
streaked variegation and is similar in appearance to H. 'Dorothy
Benedict'. It is a giant size (29 inches high) mound
that has heavily corrugated foliage with thick
substance. In late June, this plant produces near white
flowers in dense clusters followed by viable seeds. Near
white flowers bloom from late June into July.
Bill Meyer, was quoted on The American Hosta Society
website as saying, “It sets very well, rarely
missing a flower, and the seed germinates perfectly. The
seedlings grow much better than DB (H. Dorothy Benedict)
seedlings - usually twice as fast, and exhibit a good
range. Overall, this is a top-notch hybridizing plant
that can't be topped for H. 'Sieboldiana'
parentage. The first (and only) time it was auctioned it
went for $953!"
