has a stronger chance for yellow progeny ...since seed is from a selected 
yellow-leaf F1 pod-parent.  The 'Let's Streak' seed-strain comes from my 
personal selection of striated-leaf, striped-scaped; and also, 
streaky-pod'ed POD-PARENTS ...so I would hope? ..offspring will not be 
monochrome! <g>

 >>--------->> This one is a question-mark, since I've noticed, this 
particular pod-parent is reverting into the stable marginated form.  Last 
chance to get streaks from it ..if any, since I expect it will be 100% 
marginated next year, by bud-division isolation.  I've selected the F1 
striated keeper-seedling, from H. Mildred Seaver (Steaked) i.e the one 
which I liked, my F2 generation is already in the field; and that plant has 
gone into eye-division, hence no seed is available from it.

>-"-tenryu species (F1)"   What can one expect from these seeds??  --------

The pod-parent is a rapid grower; leaf mound stands near 36 inches in 
height and flower scapes are very'TALL.  Tenryu was a gift to myself; I've 
not grown seed from it, so I don't know what it might provide.

>    What is tokudama tetra ??
F1-Seed came from a Peter Ruh purchase; in a previous year, labelled 
"Tokudama Tetraploid" ..so you will have to ask Peter Ruh what this is, 
because I haven't a clue what it is he was selling seed from? The seed I am 
giving away free here, via our Norway Seed Bank is: the F2 generation of 
that PR-seedling-result.

I would like to take this opportunity, to explain the connection between 
the "nise@onelist.com-INTERNET GROUP" <-> myself <-> Iril Kolle of Norway 
Seed Bank <-> and World Flower-seedling Growers in general:
       NISE stands for "New Internet Seedling-hybridizers Exchange" ; and 
as an exchange, it is a place for those within -- to trade for whatever 
they feel like trading for e.g. information/knowledge, plants/seeds and 
whatever have you, and/or want?
       I wished to establish a 'Seed Exchange Base' for this group (and the 
whole world?) so that they might feel free to participate in/with, so I 
invited Iril Kolle of Norway (Whom was already trading all kinds of various 
genus flower-seeds via Internet worldwide?) -->> to become co-moderator of 
NISE with me?  She agreed! :)
       In our original statement of aims & objectives of NISE'group, we 
stated that our primary objective, was dedicated to the expansion of the 
genus hosta.  This is still true; however, with Iril Kolle being 
co-moderator of this group (and there is a third list-owner whom wishes to 
remain anonymous?) this means, we are concentrating on all ornamentals 
having high demand & appeal -- not just hostas? ...It's a wide open ball 
      I personally, am putting some of my best seed into the Norway Seed 
Bank; and this, after many years of seedlings trials & hobby 
pleasures.  This seed is mostly hosta-orientated, but I am also collecting 
and sending various types of Echinacea, Heuchera, Ligularia, Hemerocallis 
and so on & so forth, in an effort to establish a viable Seed Exchange 
Base, for everyone to draw from?  Of course, the catch is: nobody gets 
nothing for nothing i.e. this is not a one way highway (one must put 
something in seed in! ..to get something out?) ..but as I understand it: 
--> everyone can take/reserve whatever they wish to have right now, as long 
as they promise to put something back in later.  :(Fair enough?
      I personally, believe we have a very amicable Seed-Exchange 
arrangement/setup in the works, for our nise-residents and the whole 
Internet world to participate in same?
      BTW ...Others have indicated to me, that they will be putting hosta 
seeds into the Norway Seed Bank, to help get this whole thing rolling & put 
this show on the road; and without mentioning any names, I would like to 
thank everyone supportive of what I believe to be a very worthwhile 
Seedling-hybridizing effort/cause -- and keeping in mind, this 
'seed-bank-building based in Norway' is being done "Strictly for the fun of 
it?" ..nobody is making a dime in profits!  ..thanX-T'y'all ..for time
