There is nothing about this little cutie Candy Kisses in the Library or Registry. Can you tell us more about it?

You've found what I've found...nothing. Bob Solberg did TC I believe, but nothing on his site either.

Another pic of older plant at link below.

Here is a link that might be useful: Pic link from Midwest convention site.

AHS Convention plant was 'Delona's Smile'. Also one of Bob Solberg's hybrids.

AHHHHH. Candy Kisses looks to be a relative of Candy Dish. Those lovely rippled edged and the solid green. It will grow up to be a knockout. I got my Candy Dish from Bob and Nancy. It was love at first sight.

I'll have to look up Delona's Smile, but if it is Bob Solberg's hosta, Delona must be one of his children (or is he old enough to have kids turning the Solbergs into grandparents?) Names always have interested me. :)
