Re: Unregistered Hostas

It's nothing to worry about. Just stick with this list and you will be able
to find all of the hostas you ever wanted. There will be no net change in
the hosta supply. The American Hosta Society is in the process of
implementing some new rules concerning hosta registration and it has caused
some debate on their listserve. It's almost as much fun as actually growing

Only certain nurseries may carry unregistered hostas after 2001. They will
be easy to find.
