Re: Hosta Names

Here's my understanding of the hosta name disscussion>>>Snow Cap and Knock
out are not even in the same family, Snow Cap looks an awful lot like M.
Mountain Snow.    Decorata and Thomas Hogg are the same plant.  Not sure the
question on Undulaata albomarginata but it is not Thomas Hogg for sure.On
Stage and Choko Nishiki are the same plant and the Borwick Beauty, Color
Glory and many others are Frances Williams look alikes.  There could be some
slight variations but all will have the burn effect IN MOST gardens, so are
in the same family and linage as Frances Williams.  Golden Prayers and
Little Aurora are mixed up in the trade.  Not sure about the rest but they
sure look alike.  It is said if one plant sports that you can be sure it is
doing the same thing in someone else's garden.  So maybe that explains
so many look alikes.  Same is true for Christmas Tree and Grand Master.
Have both and they are exact in all respects.  Not familiar with Sharmon and
Phyllis Campbell.
Best Regards, Beth
