'Huron Blue'

A self-pollinated seedling of H. 'Frances Williams', this cultivar was originated by Dr. Ralph (Herb) Benedict of Michigan and registered by Pauline Banyai of Michigan in 1990. This large size (24 inch tall) mound of heavily corrugated, moderately wavy foliage bears near white flowers from late June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "This magnificent plant originated in Herb Benedict's collection. During a 1991 conversation, he related to me that it was a sibling to 'Dorothy Benedict', meaning it was a seedling of 'Frances Williams'. He had tentatively named his beautiful, blue-leaved plant 'Michigan Blue', but gave it to Pauline Banyai with permission to rename and introduce it for sale."
