: Will you get the same variety plants out of the seeds of a given Hosta variety?


Hi Bert,
Only if they have been pollinated by the same variety. If you only have one variety of hosta growing and there are no others around, then the bees should pollinate them for you. You could always do it yourself and keep the flower covered with a mesh bag until you get seeds. You might want to do some reading here.
