RE: Re:Difficult TC


I believe that H. 'Striptease' has a high cull rate and I have heard that
H. 'Laura and Darrell' has been difficult to TC (greater than 95% cull 
Which older stable hostas are you referring to that their prices are so 
It may just be that the TC labs see a limited market and have not bothered
with them.

Streaked plants do show up in TC, although it is quite rare. These are
some I am aware of: streaked H. 'Sum and Substance', streaked
H. 'Fragrant Bouquet', streaked H. 'Yellow Emperor', streaked H. 'Pizzazz'
and streaked H. 'Delta Dawn'.  Can anyone else add to the list?

Dear FHO:
    I would be interested to know if there any so-called  stable hostas
which have resisted TC , or have  been very difficult. I look at the prices
of some of the stable yet older hostas and can not help but wonder why the
prices remain so high if TC is posssible.
    I (believe) I know that unstable streaked plants can not be TC'ed ,
although I understand that they may show up in  TC process of a stable
plant. Was the TCing of 'Spilt Milk' a coup?
