Re: Hostas in California

 I just sent out two orders, one to Florida and one to California. Both of
these people say they live near the coast. Where near the coast I don't
know, but they seem to think (maybe from experience) that Hostas can grow
there because of the ocean moist air.
 My thought is that the salt in the air will not be good for the
Hostas...but maybe they have grown Hostas there before and had luck.
 Just think, two new markets opening for us Hosta sellers. WOW. And, I'm
getting out of the business...darn.
 I would like a little more knowledge of what's happening to these Hostas.
How long do they live and what size do they get. I do know that there are
some oldies that nothing seems to kill, but perhaps we have underestimated
the genus Hosta. Now the growers can start growing more heat resistant
Hostas for the coast states.
 I do know that when my husband and I were in Reno, we saw Hostas being used
for landscaping around office buildings...but I thought they were being used
as annuals??? Maybe not.
 We shall see.
