Personally I find the species very important and fascinating: they
contain all building blocks to create all the cultivars in existence,
and more to come.
In this topic you can find:
- a short introduction to systematics;
- the distribution maps of hosta species;
- a overview with a filing card for every species, if possible with a picture from the plant in the Hosta Mill.
The filing cards and the distribution maps are based on "Species, an update" in The Hosta Library. This species update is the work of Mr W.G. Schmid , whom I owe many thanks for allowing me to use these data. If you want to know more about species, that is the place to be.
