This is one of many named but non-registered cultivars that were observed in Herb
Benedict's garden in Michigan and later mentioned in
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009)
or the Hosta Library.
Herb was noted for not selling his hostas but
did make it into the market through those who received them as
gifts or bought plants which Herb donated to 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 and,
recent years, Rod Kuenster of Iowa has registered several of these hostas on Herb's behalf.
