    Dear friends,

    Last summer the international flower- and plant exposition "Pacific Flora", took place in Hamamatsu (Japan). A lot of Hostas were on view there (a.o. a lot of botanical species) which are unknown to us. A friend of mine was visiting the exposition and took some photos. Today I 've wrote a text and published some of the photos on my site http://www.hostacollectie.be .Under the button "updates "(15.01.'05) you can see photos from H.Koorin, H.Kooga, H.Seekaai, H.Mangetsu, H.venusta 'Nikkoo' and much more
    (in total 38 photos from rare Japanese Hostas)
    Click on the photo to enlarge it.

    I hope you enjoy it.
    Friendly regards,
    Danny Van Eechaute

    Thanks Danny, I enjoyed the link..The Japanese are always on the cutting edge of botany and herbaceous plants. There are some very nice cultivars of hosta available here in the US, but none like what I saw from the show in Japan.
