>Incredible... When people offer the question, "Just how many more
lookalikes Hosta do we need?", I >know they need to dig deeper in their
mind's eye to envision new possibilities. OR, now I can just point

what is already out there.
>Awesome!!! Great work, hybridizers and FirstLook crew. And
these are just a few of what can be >seen? Wowzer.
we selected were of exciting new unreleased (mostly) plants that we
happened to have really good photos of. There are other pictures of equally
exciting plants that didn't match up photo-quality wise. These plants are just
the tip of the iceberg of exciting new hostas that will be entering the market
in the next few years. Some have said that we are getting to the point with
hostas where we have already seen all we're going to see. If that were true the
future would hold little promise.
Happily I can
say that it isn't true, not one bit! Many of the hybridizers working with Hosta
do not have good photos of their plants and are not represented in the slide
show. I have been to visit some of them and, trust me, they have some that
are the equal of those that are in there! If I was any good with a camera I
could prove it.
Many of the
best new plants out there will show up to compete at the First Look Seedling and
Sport Competition, so if you enjoyed the little treat we gave you, why not come
to the feast? You'll all be welcome! I guarantee you won't be disappointed if
you like new hostas.
