Re:Serrated hosta leaves

I remember seeing a small hosta that came from Japan after Olsen, Dieson and
all came back from their trip.  It had serrated edges and at the time I was
fascinated with the thought of a serrated hosta leaf.  I have noticed in
seedlings that often they will have a serrated edge when they germinate, but
then they lose it.  I hope someone with some knowledge of this phenon. will
jump in on this discussion.  I'm glad you brought it up.

 Is anyone familiar with the species kiyosumiensis?  It's described as having
 microscopically toothed margins and sounds interesting.  Do any of the
 experts feel that the serration could be developed more thru
 self crossing?   A hosta with a shark's tooth edge, wouldn't that be wild!
 Any opinions on how to go about it?  Would selfing be the best way, or out
 crossing?  Gotta get this one just to experiment with.  Also think I'll be
 adding laevigata to the collection.   >>
