Hi, John:

That's the killer....  In the early years of hosta, the majority of the new hosta came from the New England area (the list of NE hybridizer's is long...) and Paul Aden from Long Island.

Don't get me wrong....  There was the Midwest influence from Dr. Herb Benedict.

The only NE hybridizer is Roy Herold...  There is Alex Malloy, too, from New York.  But the major leaguer's are now from the Midwest (too long a list).

There are no mentors here like Bill Lachman was to Kevin Vaughn.  While Mildred Seaver developed a lot of 'Sea' hosta, the bees did it for the most part.

I believe the HostaScience journal would be too far over my head and not being present at the meetings I would miss too much.

Thank you for all the information....  I greatly appreciate it.
