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
Hosta Society. So far we have included
618 originators from 36 U.S.
states and another 218 from
19 other countries.
Listed below are the
hybridizers/originators/registrants found in our hosta database
