Re: green spot


Quoting from  Hosta the Aristocratic Plant for Shady Gardens, by Eunice
Fisher (lst Sec-Treas. of AHS): "a bud sport of Starker's Aurea Folia.
Leaves are spotted with several shades of green and yellow. In late summer
it turns uniform green. It grows upright and leaves are pointed with sharp
tips."  There is a complete collection of Mrs. Fisher's cultivars at the
Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Madison WI. The book quoted was reprinted and
sold at the dedication of the  Eunice Fisher portion of Olbrich at the
Midwest Regional Hosta Meeting held in Madison in the early 1990's. At the
time of the dedication, this was a lovely section of Olbrich;much of their
hosta collection is currently located in temporary beds as many other garden
sections have been moved redeveloped. Much of this Eunice Fisher was
collected by Walter & Jean Rideout, with major contributions by Herb
Benedict & Peter Ruh. Hope this helps.        Bernie Treichel
