Hostas of the Year

Every year since 1996, the American Hosta Growers Association has chosen the winner from an increasing number of hostas.

These hostas are usually the cornerstones of most hosta collector’s gardens making these selections a great choice for beginning collectors as well as avid hosta collectors alike. 


What makes a certain named hosta stand out to the point that it's awarded "Hosta of the Year" by the American Hosta Growers Association?

Here are some characteristics that are taken into consideration:


  • They are widely available in sufficient supply,
  • They retail for about $15 in the year of selection.
  • The hostas grow well in all regions of the country.

Here's a full list of Hostas of the Year since 1996.  We grow and sell a number of these.  Click on the hosta name to see the features of these hostas and our great prices.
