This group of hostas was develop several decades ago by David Stone of Connecticut. The plants were originally known as David Stone Mediums and each was named by DSM followed by a number. Over the years, the plants were dispersed to other hostaphiles but Peter Ruh collected all 19 cultivars, renamed them and registered the hostas on behalf of David in the late 1980s. The plants had been preserved by Eunice Fisher, Frank and Henry Payne of Piedmont Gardens, Clarence Owens, Alex Summers of Sunnyborder Nursery, Pauline Banyai and David Reath.
