Re: Hosta Names

I am in error.  I do not have Snow Cap.  Sorry for the added confusion!  I canvassed a few gardens including my own and was confusing Snow Cap and Snow Crust.  Snow Crust is the one that is a look alike of M. Mountain Snow.  Snow Cap would indeed be confused with Knock Out.  Close for sure.  Again, I am sorry for adding to the confusion.

Beth-- You said " Snow Cap looks an awful lot like M.
Mountain Snow."  They do not look at all alike in my garden. I checked they library and the photos there are what my plants look like.  
I have growing concerns about how many suppliers of hosta don't seem to have any quality control measures over the identity of the various varieties sold.
