Re: spiltmilk stable or not

The name game,

The all green version of 'Spilt Milk' is being called 'Green Milk' ' in these
parts. 'Green Milk' is a vigorous grower and an attractive hosta.

If Beth Arnold ever decides to name her yellow seedlings from 'Spilt Milk', I
suggest the names 'Butter Milk' ' and 'Egg Nog'.

The names 'Ogon Milk' and 'Yellow Milk'  have a sour ring to them.

 'Sour Milk' may lack market appeal!

Hi Cheryl
Spilt Milk reverts back more than any other plant in my opinion,
probably close to 10-15% here anyway. I have never heard any statistics
for it or any other hosta for that matter from anyone else though.
