Hosta Library Help

Hosta Lovers,
As Bob Axmear mentioned the other day, text has been added to many of the 
varieties at the Library, a result of Glen Williams and Bobbi Diehl's hard 
work. Walla Walla Barbara has volunteered to help with the Abiqua series of 
plants and Steve Chamberlain will add to the information on his Academy group.

As you can imagine it will be an awesome task to get information on each of 
the more than 3,000 varieties.  While many offered to HELP with the Library 
in any way they could, this would be a way for many to help...

What we would like to try and do is post a list of varieties and ask for any 
discussion of them from anyone who has ANY experience in growing them.  They 
will be some of the less common varieties.

The first group will be from the 'C's' at the Library.  If you see a variety 
from the list that you grow, please list it in the subject line and disscuss 
anything about it that you think would be of interest in the text part of the 

Currently there are 66 'C' varieties at the Library.  A selected list here is 
plucked from the list of 66.  Choose as many from the list as you have 
experience growing and post it to the group. This will be done on each of the 
list serves: Phoenix, Hosta-open and hosta pixlist.  Please post your input 
to any or all of the list serves.  I will be collecting all the posts in a 
file and then passing along the input to be compiled and proofed for addition 
to the Library.  It will be important to use the subject line for single 
varieties or LIBRARY TEXT in the subject line if you have more than one 
variety in the body of your text.

The Library just keeps getting better and better with everyone's help!  The 
first group is up for discussion for the weekend of 2/12 and 2/13.  Thanks 
and let's hear from you!
