Re: Tattoo----Solution to the Problem

Clyde, We know that your statement is true but obviously some are not aware
of that situation.  Is it possible for some Tattoo to be infected and others
not when they come from the same source?  Hence my post about Tattoo.

Now all things considered, are not nurseries supposed to sell plants that
are free of disease?  Considering the degree to which my plant was infected,
I was upset that I paid such a price for Tattoo and that it had this problem
which was not known to me prior to my purchase.  Believe it or not, I have
had no anthracnose in my garden on any hostas, (or other plants for that
matter) not even Little Aurora.  I do not buy plants with the idea in mind
that I will treat them if they are diseased.  If it is treated will it go
away for all time or should I consider asking the seller to take it back?
