Hybridizing the Small Ones

Dear Hosta Brethren:

 Have had two different requests for information about working with dwarf
and mini hostas in resepct to hybridization , raising them from seed, and
keeping them alive. This is for the Q and A Column in THJ. Any expertise/
experience/ advice would be appreciated. Are there any hybridizers that are
famous for their tiny hostas?  I know Solberg has had some lovley ones and
several of our popular hybridizers have one or two in their portfolio of
hostas. I remember that Roy Herold once pointed out a hosta in someone's
garden that he said was a cross between the "largest hosta and the
"smallest"  hosta. Of course I have forgotten what he pointed out. Anyone
know this?   Thanks, glen
