Last July we found two very special 'World Cup' sports in a TC (tissue culture) batch of 1500 plants. One of those sports has the beautiful leaf coloring of 'World Cup' and also features a wide white border. It's a stunning hosta that we named 'Laurence' after Yvon's 91 year old mother who was born, raised and lived all her life in the Mauricie region of Quebec. Today, we said our final farewell to Laurence Dubois Trepanier as she leaves us to join her beloved husband Gaston on the second part of their journey together. Thank you Laurence for being a beautiful and loving Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Mother-in-Law and Friend. Although we already deeply miss you we know that you are now in the arm's of the husband you loved so much. Until we see you again we will care for 'Laurence' and give it the love and nurturing that you gave each and everyone of us.
