>Gerry:Both You and Glen , did the right thing.  There is, and it must be 
continued, an understanding throught our industry, that , above all else, 
 plants must be properly identifyed.  Anyone can make a mistake.  The 
seller, has an obligation to replace anything he sells that is "not 
right"  He may then "go back" to his source and demand replacement.  Not 
only should he have replaced your plants chearfully, he should have 
thanked you for pointing out the problem!  Unfortunatly, this kind of 
thing is wide spread, and most folks let it go by. I hope with more 
education, we can all learn to be more astute consumers of Hostas, and 
"hold " sellers to high standards!  Even if thet means ME!
