Eau Claire man’s hostas to be sold internationally
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) — To Charlie Kwick, hosta gardening was always just hobby — something the 78-year-old decided to take up in his retirement along with golf and making jam.
But during the last decade, as the Eau Claire resident has gradually filled up his south side front yard with hostas, most of which of his own creation through hybridizing, it's becoming clear Kwick's passion for the shade-tolerant foliage plants isn't just another hobby. It's a talent.
