Peter and Jean Ruh of Ohio registered this
large size sport of H. 'Sieboldiana' in 2001 on behalf of the originator,
of Massachusetts. It grows
into a large size hosta about 26 inches high and spreads 5 feet wide with heavily
corrugated foliage with thick substance. Dense clusters of near
white flowers bloom starting in mid-June.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...a variation of H. 'Frances Williams' with a gold edge...To me, this plant has
always seemed to fall within the limits of variability in
'Frances Williams' itself."
Similar cultivars include H. 'Maple Leaf'.
An article titled Too Many Lookalikes by
Bob Keller in
Hosta Journal (2010 Vol. 41 No. 2) states that, "There
are many registered 'Frances Williams' lookalikes including H. 'Aurora Borealis', H. 'Squash Edge', 'Holly's Green and Gold', 'Golden Circles' and
'Olive Bailey Langdon', as well as some unregistered ones."
