Interesting Plant: Hosta sieboldiana ‘Dorothy Benedict’

Registered by Dorothy’s husband, Dr. Ralph (Herb) Benedict in 1983, this large (26 inches high) hosta has blue-green with yellow streaked variegation. The foliage is heavily corrugated, has thick substance and is convexly cupped. Dense clusters of near white flowers bloom in mid June to July. – The Hosta Helper

I love the spiral design on this plant, as well as the somewhat larger size than you usually see in a begonia. I could foresee several shadier spots in the garden that could benefit from something as striking as this. I think it would be an amazing focal point in any garden.
