Hi Charles,

Thank you for the nice comments about the Hosta Registry web site.  Yes, there
are plans to include images in the future.  The current Hosta Registry site
was built with the existing database.  As enhancements are made to the
registration database, you can expect those to be carried forward on the Hosta
Registry site, as well.

  Subject: [Phoenix Hosta] H. m 'Chirifu'

  Many years ago, Hosta m 'Chirifu' was hailed in The Hosta Journal as a major
find and it was predicted that this plant would be used heavily in
hybridizing.  I have just looked at http://hostaregistrar.org/index.asp (BTW,
a wonderful site!!) and find that there are only two plants registered with m.
'Chirifu' as the pod parent.  (Also two as pollen parent).

  I have searched the HostaLibrary and did a search on Google, but alas,
cannot find photographs of either H. 'Metropolis' nor H. 'Evening Gown', the
two cultivars with Chirifu as the pod parent.

  Might someone out there have a photo of either of these plants that you
could share, either privately or on the Robins/Open?

  As an after thought, I wonder if the registrar site will ever have photos of
each registered plant included in the database - or perhaps HostaLibrary?
Afterall, to register a plant, you must submit a photo of the plant at the
time of registration.  (The reqirements for registration include "  - One
photographic print or slide of the clump, with leaf detail discernable."

  I, for one, would be willing to scan in photos/slides in preparation for
such a project.
