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.

Mr. Crockett:

If my memory serves me correctly this discussion started on October 12, 2001 
when you sent a picture labeled 'Blue Beauty Soules.'  On October 15 you 
wrote me that the picture was taken at Soules Garden and the plant was 'Blue 
Beauty.'  As you know there are plants that do end in'Soules.'  Hence the 

On October 13th I send to the Hosta Library my pdf file on 'Blue Beauty.' It 
states that the name is 'Blue Beauty,' and that the secondary name is 
"Birchwood Blue Beauty (HN) or a horticultural name.  In the reference 
section under Zilis it states the index pages 78, 86, 534 where information 
can be found. On the bottom line under 'Other' it says ==formerly called 
'Birchwood Blue Beauty.'   You may go to the Hosta Library under Birchwood 
Blue Beauty and see the pdf file that I sent on that date.

Yes,. you were wrong in labeling the picture as 'Blue Beauty Soules'.
