A medium to large size hosta, this cultivar is a
tissue culture sport of an F1 seedling of H. 'Dorothy Benedict' which was registered by Dr. Ed Elslager of Michigan in 2005. It has blue-green foliage with a gold
colored medial (center) variegation. The leaves are
heavily corrugated, broadly oblong to ovate and have
thick substance. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July on
scapes about 31 inches tall.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "How many gold-centered
H. 'Sieboldiana'-types develop
spring desiccation burn? To name a few, 'Du Page Delight'...'Borwick Beauty' (aka 'Color Glory'), and
'Queen of Islip' usually burn severely. Do not include 'Krinkle
Sister' in this group."
H. 'Krinkle Twist' is
another seedling from this cross.
