Not being a hybridizer or indeed even a collector, I was astonished to find
Texas A&M was even doing a study on hostas.  I mean, a couple gave them two
million bucks to clone their dog Missy and they haven't done that, yet.  A
cat, yes, a calf, yes, but no dog.

Today, as we tooled over to get some gardenias to put in the holes left by
the moved spireas, I was amazed to see a whole half shelf of hostas at
Paradise Gardens.  They weren't spectacular, and had very long bloom spikes
sticking up, but even to see a hosta at all, locally, is unusual.

Why would anyone particularly want streaked hostas when the regular run of
hostas are so nice?
