Hmmm... not listed in the 2005 Hosta Finder. I have no idea. Sorry.

The Hosta Library photo is by Luc Klinkhamer. He's in Europe, but at least you could write him and try to find out if he knows anyone in the States who has some.

This is his home page. (Not the same as the link above).

I know why you want it and I wish you the best of luck. There are daylilies called 'Our Boy Brian' and 'Brian's Birthday.' Put Brian in the cultivar blank below and nothing in any other blank, and you'll get a two-page list.

Here is a link that might be useful: Search BRIAN in Cultivar Blank Here

Desperately Seeking this Hosta

I have seen "Brian's Angel" hosta advertised but is no longer
available. Do you know of any place I can find some?

RE: WANTED: Desperately Seeking this Hosta

Or you could always take an unnamed seedling or sport that appeals to you and name it yourself. There are thousands of hostas registered, not all available in commerce. I understand the emotional connection to wanting to honor a loved one, but you may end up with a plant that is physically indistinguishable from many others.

Make the plant and the memory as unique as the individual that you are honoring. Plus, you never need to register it, just know that a particular plant carries that meaning for you and your family and you can give it any name you want.
