Each year The American Hosta Society takes a poll of its members to determine the ranking of the top hostas currently available. The listings we have come from either the AHS website or directly from old copies of The Hosta Journal. In recent years, they have taken a second poll devoted strictly to "small hostas".

If you have access to any polls done during the years between 1975 and 1984, please send us a copy...Thank You.
