How many different hostas exist?
Nobody knows for sure. We have over 12,000 different hosta
names in our database with each
one having its own page. Considering duplicate names (two
different plants but only one name or one plant with multiple
names), out-dated or incorrect names and "extinct" plants, we
have descriptive information on nearly 9,000 hosta cultivars,
botanical varieties and species. One or more photos are included
for over 3,300 cultivars.
In addition to the cultivars
& species listed below,
we have created dozens of data retrieval pages
including hostas by: name words, sizes, leaf colors, flower colors, state
of origin, leaf variegation, originators by state or
country, etc., etc. Have
some fun and learn more about our favorite genus of landscape
plants for the shade!
