 HOSTA LIST

Currently we are not set up with pictures for each hosta. We are adding pictures gradually. By going to HostaLibrary.org you can find pictures for nearly all of these. They often show both young and mature plants in various sunlight conditions.
 
Most of our divisions now come from plants that are over 6 six years old, so eyes will be large and quickly fill out/begin to multiply for you.  Hostas above $10 will usually only have 1-2 large eyes.  Hostas below that will have multiple eyes.
 
HOSTA ORDERS ARE FILLED FROM MID-MAY TO MID-SEPTEMBER.  PLEASE HOLD YOUR ORDERS UNTIL THEN.  THANKS!

(J) indicates a variety being sold by my son Jason
(tc) indicates a 1st year tissue culture plant, newly ordered this spring.  These will usually pot up in 3" or 4" pots.

Choose a picture from the Gallery
(15"H x 60"W) Ruh/Hofer 79

If you haven't seen this plant you might assume from its description that it is just another white variegated Fortunei type - but you can spot 'Antioch' every time.  It has won multiple awards from the Hosta Society and every year it is ranked highly on the popularity polls, right up there with all the expensive new introductions. It has an informal look to it, large pointed green leaves that arch nearly to the ground, with wide, irregular margins of creamy white. Each leaf is different, and a mature clump is really beautiful. Lavender flowers.

AUGUST MOON
