I have a potted Maekawa in the greenhouse this spring to see if I can get a
plant to flower earlier.
In Sylvania, OHIO (one mile from Michigan) Maekawa is the last hosta to
flower and I guess I
have been too lazy to save the pollen for the next summer.

You are certainly correct about the beautiful leaves.

Hosta Brethren:

  I saw a seedling from H. 'Maekawa' for sale the other day and realized I
had not heard anything about this plant in a long time. It certainly has
one of the most beautiful leaves in the business. At least for me, it has
always been a very slow grower.  Does anyone know of any hybridizing that
has been done with it, pod parent or pollen parent? Are there any sports or
mutations of this hosta? Has it ever been put into TC?
