This is a hybrid from Herb Benedict, and the ancestry is 'Dorothy Benedict' x montana. The leaf is wide with a tapered point and the color blue-green with a cream-white edge. The texture and substance give this plant its character. It has lots of pebbling and seersuckering. The bloom scape is typical of a montana. It is fertile. The hosta will grow well in the sun but looks better in partial shade. It is medium sized.
