Hosta 'White Dove'

Dr. Ralph (Herb) and Dorothy Benedict of Michigan registered this self-pollinated seedling of H. 'Beatrice' in 1995. It forms a small size mound 6 inches high by 17 inches wide with elliptic shaped leaves. In August, it bears white flowers.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...'White Dove' and 'White Swan' sported out of the same selfed 'Beatrice' seedling."


These 2010 photos were taken at the Ralph (Herb) and Dorothy Benedict Hosta Hillside in Michigan, tours and vendors at The American Hosta Society National Convention in Minnesota, Wade and Gatton Nursery and Wade Botanical Gardens in Ohio, Toledo Botanical Garden and the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.
