Lakeside Mom

At the last minute last year I threw  30 or 40 seeds from a late H.
'Lakeside Mom' into a flat. This was the first time it had bloomed. It was
all OP. As the winter went along I saw that there was a lot of variegation,
but did not divide them or pay much attention. I just divided them to set
out yesterday. There were 37 seeds. Only 3 of them were green. That is a
pretty high return on variegated seed. Of course it is not a sure thing, as
all hosta people will tell you. None the less I was impressed with the
plants and the number. In this batch there were already 3 totally
medio-variegated plants. The rest all heavily streaked.

I remain amused how , despite an apprent lack of chlorophyll,  rapidly some
of these seedlings can grow.

"Ding an sich."...is it really there?
