Re: Hosta Names

Hi Beth
I am not trying to provoke an arguement here, but...........
your comment about Decorata  and Thomas Hogg being the same
must be qualified by saying "in the States at least". Actually now you
mention it I did see more than one labelled Thomas Hogg during the
convention that looked like Decorata to me. However over here Decorata is
Decorata and Thomas Hogg is now Undulata albomarginata unless you buy one in
the grocery store when either could be wrong.
It seems in the UK TH was used for UA in error and that name remains on many
cheap plants perhaps as I suspect it remains on Decorata in the US. We have
abandoned TH to the bin and now have the blunt tipped Decorata and the point
tipped UA as two very different plants. Enuff said?
