Hostas have been around for a long time. Many new ones come along every year but there are some that eventually disappear from gardens to be replaced by others. Sometimes a named cultivar showed promise in the originator's garden but never made it onto the market. Eventually, that lone plant was lost to weather or neglect. The Hostapediaby Mark Zilis (2009),uses the phrase "may no longer exist" for such plants.
