Hi Everybody,
         I was wondering if the new hosta 'Thunderbolt' is a sport of 'Great Expectations', or did it come from a plain sieboldiana? Is the center color different from GE or the same. 'Great Expectations' does have a unique color in the center that I haven't seen before in any other plant, and behaves strangely too. For one thing it gives viable but very pale yellow-white seedlings. For another, no streaked form (or the reverse margin form) has appeared despite very large numbers being propagated by TC. GE really seems to be an oddity.
