of Canby, Oregon believes he can trace this hosta to one of his mother's plants dating back to 1928...Among the several hosta varieties that his mother

designation "1928 #7 W.E." (W.E. meant White Edged.) Most assuredly this hosta
is the one we now call H. 'Antioch'...I have a copy of the 1973 Wayside Gardens'
catalogue and it lists "H. fortunei aurea marmorta"...another example where
nursery people -- not botanists -- have given a Latin botanical name to a
hosta..."aurea marmorta" means "marbled with gold"...Chet Tompkins' mother's
"1928 #7 W.E." became "H. fortunei Aurea Marmorata" which gave way to H.
