Hosta is the Number One selling genus of herbaceous perennial in the U.S. People who love these plants are often called. These pages are devoted to the people who hybridize new cultivars, find new species, promote hostas or add to the knowledge and enjoyment of this landscape plant.

Listed below are the names of a few of the people who fall into this category. By clicking on the alphabetical range at the top of the list, you will be taken to a page with more detail about each person. That will include lists of hostas that they are connected with, their accomplishments and  awards.

We are always looking to expand these listings. So, if you know of someone who should be included, please EMAIL US their name and a brief description of their contributions to the World of Hostas. Thanks.
