     1According to Steven C. Chamberlain, "Ploidy and Pollen Viability in Hosta Cultivars: Zonneveld's Data Sets," The Hosta Journal 42, no. 1 (2011): 71-78, H. 'Cheatin Heart' is presented as a ploidy chimera (2-2-4) and a diploid (2-2-2). Upon re-examination of the flow cytometry data, it was determined that 'Cheatin Heart' is diploid (2-2-2).

     2Ben J. M. Zonneveld and Frank Van Iren, "Flow cytometric analysis of DNA content in Hosta reveals ploidy chimeras", Euphytica, 111, no. 2 (2000): 105-110 lists H. "Fire Works" as diploid. This hosta is not H. 'Fireworks' PP16,062 (Walters Gardens- 2001). Zonneveld and Van Iren, "H. 'Fireworks' and 'Sparkler': Unusual Aneuploid Sports from 'Loyalist'," The Hosta Journal 46, no. 2(2015): 72-76 states that H. 'Fireworks' (Walters Gardens- 2001) is aneuploid, 3.2-4-4.

     3According to Zonneveld and Frank Van Iren, "Flow cytometric analysis of DNA content," H. 'Patriot' is tetraploid. However, B. J. M. Zonneveld, "Nuclear DNA content of ploidy chimeras of Hosta Tratt. (Hostacae) demonstrate three apical layers in all organs, but not in the adventitious root," Plant Systematics and Evolution 269, no. 1 (2007): 29-38 states that H. 'Patriot' is partially tetraploid (4-2-2). Eventually, it was discovered that both partially tetraploid as well as fully tetraploid forms are in the trade. According to B. J. M. Zonneveld and Warren I. Pollock, "Flow cytometric analysis of somaclonal variation in lineages of Hosta sports detects polyploidy and aneuploidy chimeras," Plant Biology 14, no. 6 (2012): 972-979, "H. 'Patriot' exists as both partial tetraploid (4-2-2) and fully tetraploid (4-4-4) plants in the trade (Zonneveld 1999). Several other plants with different ploidy are in commerce under the same name. Examples are H. 'Grand Tiara', H. 'Grand Marquee' and H. 'Touch of Class', with both 4-2-2 and 4-4-4 in the trade. Seemingly, over the years, tissue culture propagation of 4-2-2 plants has given rise to 4-4-4 plants. As 4-2-2 plants have leaves comparable in thickness to 4-4-4 plants, this change might go unnoticed." Also see, Ben J. M. Zonneveld, "The DNA Content of H. 'Francee', 'Minuteman', and Two Different Varieties Called 'Patriot'," The Hosta Journal 30, no. 2 (1999): 28, 29.

     4According to Zonneveld and Frank Van Iren, "Flow cytometric analysis of DNA content," H. 'Little Blue' is incorrectly identified as a tetraploid (page 3) and an aneuploid (page 5). Zonneveld has since determined H. 'Little Blue' to be a triploid.

     5According to Warren I. Pollock, "Reflections: 2008," The Hosta Journal 40, no. 1 (2009): 72-76, H. 'On Stage' is incorrectly presented as tetraploid. In Zonneveld and Van Iren, "Flow cytometric analysis of DNA content," H. 'On Stage' is confirmed as diploid.

     6According to Warren I. Pollock, "This and That: 2011," The Online Hosta Journal 42 Online, H. 'Bubba' is aneuploid, not diploid as previously stated by Steven C. Chamberlain, Warren I. Pollock, and Ben J. M. Zonneveld, "Ploidy and Pollen Viability in Hosta Cultivars: Zonneveld's Data Sets," The Hosta Journal 42, no. 1 (2011): 71-78.

     7Steven C. Chamberlain, Warren I. Pollock, and Ben J. M. Zonneveld, "Ploidy and Pollen Viability in Hosta Cultivars: Zonneveld's Data Sets," The Hosta Journal 42, no. 1 (2011): 71-78 incorrectly presents H. 'Titanic' as triploid. However, Zonneveld and Pollock, "Flow cytometric analysis of somaclonal variation," confirms H. 'Titanic' is aneuploid, 3-2.8-2.8.

     8Hosta 'Neutron Star' was originally submitted as H. 'Otome' for flow cytometry measurement. See Steven C. Chamberlain, Warren I. Pollock, and Ben J. M. Zonneveld, "Ploidy and Pollen Viability in Hosta Cultivars: Zonneveld's Data Sets", The Hosta Journal 42, no. 1 (2011): 71-78. The hosta was determined to be 4-4-4 and the name was later changed to 'Neutron Star'.
