Dear fellow HOSTAholics,

A few people have written me and asked for more information on the Hosta I
donated to this year's "First LOOK" Auction which ends tomorrow night...so
 are the details I originally wrote up for the plant.  The current High Bid
for the division I am donating is only $90 and there are plenty of other
Hostas  currently going for a little less and of course a few considerably
(One is  already in a bidding war at over $300)...but I encourage everyone
reads  this to go to the First LOOK Auction site and review all the wonderful
varieties  that are being offered this year, put in a bid for those that you
fancy but most  importantly, contact Bill and Carol to make a donation
sometime today  or tomorrow.  The Auction closes at 10:00pm EST so its
certainly not too  late to contact them to make a donation!  It doesn't have
to be
the world's  rarest Hosta, there are plenty out there that you may have that
some of us don't  yet...so just use your imagination and have some fun with
 I hope to  see all of you in Burlington, VT this summer on July 9th for a
great weekend at  First LOOK 5...

You will be bidding on a one of a kind division, originally from one of two
tiny streaked seedlings that were purchased at the original FIRST Look Auction
 held in NJ back in 2001.   It finally came into its own last year and  was
entered in the most recent FIRST Look competition held last summer in  Upstate
NY and came away with a second place ribbon in its class. You are  bidding on
the first of its kind away from Glenville Gardens so its most  certainly a
rarity and obviously an OS Division.  It has yet to flower so  only Mother
knows its prospects for future Hybridization, but only time  will tell in
that regard.  Itbs twin sibling is called bHasamona Sallybs  Surpriseb
but she
hasnbt proved ready for distribution yet (FYI- Daniel and  Sally are

SPECIAL NOTE: As other HOSTAholics have sometimes chosen to do, all of the
Hosta introductions currently under consideration for registration at
 Gardens start with the word bHasamonab as their pre-fix (See bHasamona
Cynthia  Annb in the Hosta Library).  That word is a family favorite derived
30  years ago by a toddler running wild throughout his grandmotherbs home,
being  playfully chased by his Uncle and yelling out something that sounded
bHasamonab as he tried to escape being teased and tickled.  The word has
become a family favorite and is used frequently at weddings, graduations, or
other celebrations as kind of a toast to everything good.  It is also  shouted
out in a crowd to get someone to stop and acknowledge their  presence.  It
often has been described to take on a similar connotation to  the Hebrew word
Shalomband all that it has come to mean (Used as a Greeting or
for bPeaceb).
