RE: Trends in hostas


My personal guess is..... Form and Flowers.

In this season.... seedlings.
	Original genetic combo's that 'create' new hosta in shapes and
sizes, forms and 'flavor'.

Out this season.... sports.
	TC has killed the joy of sports.   The amount of sports out
there due to TC prop. has somewhat taken away the 'rare 	find'

My vote is on Tetraploids........Whirlwind,Revolution, Patriot,
Liberty,Loyalist,Twilight,Touch of Class,Morning Light, Fire & Ice, etc
Add in the sports of June and Gold Standard and you have covered the
popular
corner of the market.
