DetailsBlue-green with gold stripes between veins and some gold mottling; cordate, cupped with smooth margins; some rugosity. It is a very popular breeding plant despite its slow growth. This plant was the breakthrough for variegated seedlings of the future. This reached a bidding price of $1000 at auctions. Dorothy Benedict was made famous because of a special hosta named for her and hybridized by her husband, Dr. Herb Benedict.
