 Hi Ben,
      I have his first book and recommend it to anyone who thinks that
hundreds of photos of variegated plants is an interesting way to spend a few
hours. I will buy the second as soon as I find one. Thanks for the answer on
other streaked genera. Do these or others also show, like Hosta, a
propensity to change from a streaked pattern to stable periclinal chimeras?
