***FREE TRADE*** HOSTA SEED IS AVAILABLE FOR STRAIGHT TRADING (seed for seed with no money needed).

"RULE ONE" -- Only seed coming from striated-leaf pod-parents (Maternal Aspect?) will provide for variegated hosta offspring results.  When also selects striped scapes and streaked pods as well; then striated seedling results, are pretty well guaranteed.  The following, is from my line-breeding seed-strain endeavors:
