This new introduction (H. 'Dorothy Benedict' x H. hypoleuca) is indeed a "many splendored thing!" The large, corrugated, black-green leaves are each surrounded by a very wide golden-yellow border. The 43" diameter clumps are slow to mature but will develop into one of the most spectacular hostas in your garden.
