Re: Summer Joy question

 Hi Everyone,
         I have a question about a plant. Maybe some discussion about it is a 
good idea. A few years ago a new plant was introduced with the name 'Summer 
Joy'. When it was registered it was claimed to be a sport of 'Blue Splendor' 
with a white center. There is a picture of the plant with the registration 
which shows a hosta that seems to fit the description. The plant I bought was 
a 'Great Expectations', of this I have no doubt. A trip to the HostaLibrary 
shows three pictures----- The first may not be 'Great Expectations', the 
second was later confirmed to be, and the third is clearly GE. There is one 
for sale at the HostaLibrary Auction site that the seller describes as just 
like picture #3, >>

Hi Bill,

Thank you for the concern.
The plant, H. 'Summer Joy', I have and am offering on the Hosta Library 
auction came directly (I picked it up there myself) from the Klehm Nursery 
located in S. Barrington, IL, where the registered plant originally came 
from. Roy Klehm also gave the Dubuque Arboretum a H. 'Summer Joy' 2 years 
ago, sent from his late location in Champaign, IL. They look the same. You/we 
can have questions as to its correctness but I have to believe the 
originator. Klehm Nursery will have to be the one to correct the    
problem, if there, is in a fact, a problem. :-)
Thank you,
Jim Schwarz  (zone 4)
