There are personal preferences for what hostas we like and don't like, 
but then on the commercial side there are some hostas that we can 
agree have problems.  For awhile I didn't like Patriot because of the 
burnt edges, but I now have a Patriot I believe is probably the true 
tetraploid rather then the triploid-tetraploid chimera and, at least 
for me, takes considerablely more sun without burning.
