Some of the over 12,000 hosta names in our database are of "unknown" origin. However, most of them have someone named as the person who originated (discovered, hybridized or selected) the cultivar or the person who registered it with The American Hosta Society. Listed below are the individuals or enterprises who are associated with the cultivars in our database. Some have only one or two hostas to their credit while others such as Herb Benedict or Ed Elslager of Michigan, Alex Malloy of New York, Mark Zilis of Illinois and Mary Chastain of Tennessee each have introduced hundreds of cultivars.
