upright growing sport of H. 'Jelly Bean' was originated by
Dr. Ralph (Herb) Benedict of Michigan and registered on his behalf by Rod Kuenster of Iowa in 2010. It forms a small size (7 inches high by 22
inches wide) mound of light green foliage with
streaked variegation in the center of the leaf. They
are lightly twisted, slightly wavy, ovate and
slightly shiny on top. Medium lavender, tubular
flowers with stripes bloom from mid-June into July.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), says that this is a sport of H. 'Jelly Bean' while
the registration material indicates that the
parentage is "unknown".
