Hosta 'Jack of Diamonds'
 

Robert Savory of Savory's Gardens in Minnesota registered this hybrid of H. 'Sieboldiana' x an unnamed seedling sport in 1985. This cultivar makes a medium size hosta about 16 inches high with a spread of about 20 inches. It produces near white flowers in late June followed by viable seeds.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "...the golden-yellow margin does not scorch. Slow to increase...Smaller, with flatter leaves than H. 'Frances Williams'."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Bingo', H. 'Brave Amherst', H. 'Cartwheels', H. 'Fleeta Brownell Woodroffe', H. 'Kara', H. 'Lake Hitchcock', H. 'Lakeside Legal Tender', H. 'Merry Sunshine', H. 'Tokudama Flavocircinalis' and H. 'Wagon Wheels'.

A Photo Essay article by Steve Chamberlain in The Hostta Journal (2010 Vol. 41 No. 1) makes comments about H. 'Jack of Diamonds', "Robert Savory registered this H. 'Sieboldiana' hybrid in 1985. Although smaller in both leaf size and ultimate clump size than 'Frances Williams', it shows all the desirable qualities of this famous cultivar."
