Rules?? of thumb


These rules of thumb are only thrue if open polllinated but anything  
might happen then depending on the others flowering. 
 When selfed, green plants give 100% green. Blue plant usually  fifty 
procent blue and 50 % green. Yellow plants will give 67 %  yellow and 33
% green. Only yellow plants will give yellow ofspring  a blue or a green
will never do , unless fertilized by a yellow plant(  or a very rare 
mutation) 

<Green hostas will usually produce green offspring, > Blue hostas  will 
produce some blue, some green, and some gold offspring. > Gold  hostas 
will 
produce some blue, some green, and some gold offspring. >  Edged 
variegated 
hostas will NOT produce variegated offspring. > Only hostas that  have 
white streaks (streaky) in the center of the leaf will produce  
variegated 
offspring. > White centered hostas will produce all white hostas  which 
usually die in the seed pots due to a lack of chlorophyll. > > Seems 
likely that white centered plants are coming more from TC labs,  
naturally 
occuring sports, and some mutations. > -
