Hosta sieboldiana 'Gil Jones'

Ralph (Herb) and Dorothy Benedict registered this selfed seedling of H. 'Dorothy Benedict' in 1990. It is named for their friend and fellow hosta hybridizer, Dr. Lloyd (Gil) Jones, originator of many cultivars including the Warwick Series.

The 18 inch high plant spreads to a width of about 52 inches. The leaves are heavily corrugated and moderately wavy with thick substance. Its near white flowers in dense clusters bloom in late June.

Similar cultivars include H. 'Lovely to Behold'.
