What to look for

I am sure that everyone has a different set of points for selection. For
myself the green plant must send a message to me.

1. There must be something about it that draws my attention when it is
placed among another 50 green plants.
2. Good color and finish are a must.
3. Vigor is important.
4. Is it interesting enough for me to wait another 5 years to discover if it
is what I wanted?

I'm glad you asked that question!   I hope Ran and others will respond.
I've wondered many times when I see a nice "green" hosta what made that
person keep it growing on...the flowers come later I guess.  How does one
choose which to keep and which get ditched?
I grow a few seedlings for the fun of it....honestly I have a hard time
culling any of them...they're my babies...but what do you see/look for at
the early stage that makes you say its a keeper?
