Hybridizing of Hosta
For some viewers of hosta the extent of how far hybridizing of these plants can go has not fully been reached. Aside from the traditional colors of greens, yellows, and 'whites'; the colors of blue, and red still could be explored. Colors of black, orange, purple, and violet are still dreams within the minds of hosta growers. but they're there.
Colors are not the only expression of hosta. Leaf shapes, sizes, flowers, and plant growing form also can be explored as well.
Unfortunately there are powers who oversee the use of DNA; and they probably insist (for selfish reasons) that hybridization be done without aide of these records ... the hybridization can still be done ... slowly, and skillfully.
