Re: Hosta Names

Robyn, what do you take to get these wild dreams????

Having watched this Thomas Hogg/decorata confusion for many years, here are a 
couple of keys to differentiate them ( from Undulata albomarginata )

decorata/TH are stoloniferous and spread rapidly underground.
dec/TH have a very blunt tip when you look at the green/white edge at the 
edge. It is almost as if the edge gives way at the tip. Very distinct from 
und. albo

dec/TH blooms on lower scapes and holds their blooms l

yes there are darker versions of dec/TH depending on growing conditions. 

The orignal confusion in the 1950's came from early efforts to reconcile the 
different sources and names. Eunice Fisher's book correctly stated they were 
the same. Sounds like the errors came in the AHS Journal.
