Re: H. 'Blue Beauty'

Alex once told me that he suggested the name for the plant and that it was 'Blue Beauty' and definitely not Birchwood Blue Beauty.  So I would say that it wasn't even "formerly", more like "mistakenly Birchwood Blue Beauty".

That's one for Clyde.

Hiya Marvin!
You might recall that you sent everyone a message telling them that I was wrong in naming my pic 'Blue Beauty'; that it should have been 'Birchwood Blue Beauty'; that this was per Mark Zilis, a hosta "expert", as you called him; and, that the first sign of wisdom is getting names right, or sumpthin like that. Welllllllllll---ahemm, cough cough----I just got Mark's book and ,on page 78, he lists 'Blue Beauty' and in his description states , viz., " formerly 'Birchwood Blue Beauty'."
I just happened to run across this.
