H. sieboldiana 'Gil Jones'

Dr. Ralph (Herb) and Dorothy Benedict of Michigan registered this self-pollinated 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 large size hosta grows to about 18 inches high and 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'.
