The AHA Top Twenty List is just what it is purported to be: the
most-liked plants of those members who respond.  It is nothing more than
that, but that is a lot.  It provides information to both the old and
the new hosta nuts.  The wiser nuts will of course seek to see a mature
plant  --  whether on the list or not  --  before buying the ones they
like best.  Conventions and society garden tours provide opportunities
to see well-grown plants.		Irwin Johnson
