Peter Ruhl Correspondence #2


My adventure into the Hosta Kingdom came somewhere about 1998 and 1999. 
Somewhere in time I found I had bought a Gold Edge, A Fortunei Obscura, a 
Fortunei Aureomarginata, a Gold Crown  a Yellow Band and a Golden Crown. This 
brought on the discovery that I had one hosta with at least six names.  I 
then started a simple data bank where I recorded and checked out each hosta 
as I bought it.  Today the entries total 4321 names.  The system has grown in 
time as the amount of information became available.  I am now is the process 
of adding the Mark Zilis book information into the data bank. His is a very 
remarkable book.

From your first page you list 9 hostas. as follows.  I will send you my date 
bank records on each name with comments.
