Sorry if you felt my comments were sarcastic, but I do feel that it is in a
sense false advertising for someone to try to claim as rare hostas that are
very readily available from numerous sources, especially at the
prices Wayside charges for them.  If they had claimed Fragrant Blue as a
rare hosta that would have been more accurate.  They do offer
some very nice hostas and are increasing their variety which is good, and
helps to promote hostas all around.  I realize a certain amount of
exaggeration is part of the marketing game I just feel sorry for people who
pay $25.00 because they want something different and they aren't getting it.
