The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Carl Mack worked as a horticulturist at the
University of Chicago during the 1940s and 1950s...in 1960, he
printed a listing of 52 hostas...These hostas were listed under
number without any known identification."
Plants sold under this name were actually a form of
H. ventricosa 'Aureomaculata'.
