Mark Zilis, owner of Q & Z has been measuring clump size on Hostas for many
years now. These new sizes are shown in his wholesale  catalog for plants
he is tissue culturing. This catalog is not readily available to the
general public but rumours have been floating around that he is writing a
book. Most of the newer sizes he has are quite shocking when compared to
the original registrations. Hope this helps.
