Don't know if you get this on the road. You must see the Asian Collection
near Vancouver, BC, at the campus of the Uni of BC. Just about every Asian
plant is represented (incl. hostas). I have several pictures taken there in my
new book. They also have a huge Rock Garden and a Japanese Garden. Hope you get
this to see these if you have time.

Am here in Victoria British Columbia on the way to the
A friend told me about a garden that had about 250 hostas
in Victoria. I figured they were probably half labeled wrong. Was ever I
wrong. Turns out his uncle is Pete Ruh from whom he got all his hosta. Nice
well labeled garden.....good size plants even though garden is only 3 years
old. My eyes are bugging out at all the nice gardens here although they could
sure use more hostas. Will visit Burchart (sp) gardens Monday. Hope to get
some pictures there.
