This is one of many named but non-registered cultivars that were observed in Herb
Benedict's garden and mentioned in
Mark Zilis (2009). Herb was noted for not selling his hostas but many
did make it into the market through other people who received them as
gifts or bought them at an AHS auction. The only specimen of many of
Herb's plants, however, existed exclusively in his garden and
are not available anywhere else. Herb passed away in 2004. In
recent years, Rod Kuenster of Iowa has registered several of these hostas on Herb's behalf.
