Marna!
Cannot thank you enough for your research and DG for re-publishing it. We're paying a lot more attention to our little woodland shade garden this year but have only one hosta to our name so far - a rambunctiously healthy Samuel Blue. I love the look of hostas-when-grouped so I've identified some specific cultivars to add, particularly the heavier tissued, slug resistant types, as we Pac Norts are in slug heaven out here. I'm on the hunt for them (the hostas, not the slugs...) right now, so am VERY glad to have encountered your article before making new purchases rather than after!
Best to you!

It gets better! Just stopped by (as if any of us "just stop by") a wonderful nursery waaaaay out in the boondocks, and found this place to be stuffed with stunning, healthy plants. I inspected every leaf, per your article. Came away from my "just-looking" foray with three new family members - A Krossa Regal, a Love Pat (honestly didn't think I would be able to find this cultivar!) and, my impulse buy, a Gold Standard. Was going to stay away from the varigateds as they apparently like at least a little speckled sun, but then the sun itself (yes, it actually does shine in Western Washington on occasion) showed me the perfect spot...

Again, I thank you and my new hostas thank you!
Best, Katy

Oh I just LOVE Gold Standard. It's a stunner at my Mom's house. Not so much in my yard yet.
