About This Plant

Leaf Detail: White margin 12in long by 10in wide; ½in to 1in wide margins that change from yellow to creamy white; blue-green center; corrugated; unruly; thick substance. Flowering: near-white flowers on 20-30in scapes late June into mid-July. Comments: Herb Benedict’s white-margined sport of ‘Dorothy Benedict’ that has never received the attention that it deserves; outstanding white-edged Sieboldiana-type that forms a large-sized mound.
