H. 'Rod Kuenster' is a seedling from Rod Kuenster's breeding program and was gifted to Jeff Miller of Land of the Giants Hosta Farm. Jeff named the seedling in Rod's honor; that speaks volumes in terms of Jeff's view of this plant for Rod is one of his very close friends. Jeff's words paint a good picture, "(I have) used this plant in my program for three years now and the seedlings are remarkable. The hosta seedgrowers who have seen this plant have drooled over it for years now. The plant sets seed even in very high temperatures, every pod."
