species and existing cultivars have each been the
source of several new cultivars of hostas. These new
plants came about as the result of sports or
hybridizing by people or bees. This includes hostas
used as seed (mother) parents or pollen (father)
parent. We have also listed plants that are noted as
being "like" another hosta. For instance, many
hostas are said to be
H. 'Sieboldiana'-like although their precise
genetic background is not known.
Note: This list
includes hostas in our database and does not include
all hostas that might fit this category.
