Wow! Every seed I've grown has been green. :) A lot of really nice edges, red petioles, and streaking on those.

Phil, congratulations, you were so lucky to attend this meeting. What wonderful plants to observe! Jeff Miller seemed to have arranged the event very well. Then you also could wander through the fields and gardens of Land of the Giants hosta farm. I must say that I am sorry to live far away in the East.

I think there will be shown a lot of pictures of this event on the Hosta Seed Growers Forum, will look at them. Thanks for showing your pictures!

ME TOO on photo 6. I couldn't pass them up without buying at least two if I saw them at my local greenhouse. Does anyone have information on them?
