Chartreuse leaves become lighter throughout the season. Dark green irregular edge. Lavender flowers in late July.
Dear green margins with chartreuse center which becomes chartreuse/white to near white as the season progresses. Light lavender flowers in mid-July.
From the hosta master, Herb Benedict, comes this wonderful sport of H. 'Dorothy'. Resembling H. 'Janet' but much improved, the brilliant golden leaves turn creamy white as the season progresses. The dark green edge provides just the perfect contrast. This is one of those hostas that just seems to grab your eye from a great distance! In mid summer, the 20" wide clumps are topped with 18" spikes of light lavender flowers... STUNNING!
Yellow leaves with a green margin, coloration dependent on amount of light it gets; can range from butter-yellow to parchment-cream; lavender flowers.
This is a Herb Benedict introduction with green margined leaves, chartreuse to gold in the spring, turning to creamy white in the summer. 
Bright, golden leaves are edged in dark green. Pretty! Lavender flowers.
