OOOOOOooooooOOOO! That is purely stunning! So, what is the hosta like? A frosty blue with white back to really set off those rich dark tones? Or a glowing deep gold for an intense contrast? Do tell...

Is this the one whose bud looked eggplant-like? Nice flower!

Oh, I can hardly wait to see the blue and gold ones with this hue of bloom! And fragrant to boot?! Seriously excellent!

So, how many billions of seedlings do you sow each year, to end up with this many “good ones”? And by the way, where is your reject pile (hehe)?

Please do keep up the good work, and be sure to remember us USA folks when you become so overrun with hosta that you MUST sell some to make room!
