New hostas come about as the result of asexual changes in the genetics of a plant called sports or through sexual reproduction (seeds) involving human manipulation (hyrbridizing) or through the random help of bees in the garden. Either way, the resulting plants share the DNA and physical traits of the parent plants which can be of interest to hostaphiles.

Listed below are plants that have been cited in one or more source as being a relative of at least one other hosta. This could be a seed or pollen parent (or grandparent) of a hybrid or a sibling from the same cross pollination. It could be the mother plant of a sport whether found in the garden or from the tissue culture lab.

Also included may be certain "like or type" plants. For instance, many hostas are said to be Tardiana-like or a H. 'Sieboldiana'-type although their precise genetic background is not known.
