RE: Eagle's Nest (making me eat crow)

Eagles Nest is a variegated form of S&S with dark green leaves and a wide
chartreuse edge.  In TC the plant falls apart into a dark green form (from
the cells in the center of the leaf  --  the possible polyploid cells) and
normal S&S (from cells that form the edge of the leaf).  The plant has
tremendous substance and very shiny leaves.  It can become somewhat
grotesque as it matures and the leave contort and twist.  It is much slower
growing than S&S, making a smaller plant.  The plant is truly unique and at
first glace would look like a sport of S&S.

Dear Ran,

I became a member of Yahoo.com to join hostapix and see Eagle's Nest. In the
end I got a flag that said that no e-mail addresses by subscription were
available and that I couldn't be invited as a guest. Do you know more about
this? In any case can you answer my question on this hosta. Are the inner
leaves darker and thicker and the outer lighter and thinner or are the
leaves "variegated" with the inner part dark green and thick and the outer
part lighter and thinner?
