NEW THIS YEAR
Hosta for Beginners: A special group of low-priced plants for those just learning how to grow hosta. No mistakes, no great expense, just good growing and learning! These are healthy hosta plants in various size categories that will be easy to grow in your garden.
The Hosta Gardener’s Silent Auction: For the first time, we’ll run a silent auction during the sale from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Winners will be announced shortly after 1:00 p.m. Auction items include new and rare hosta, hosta seed, gift certificates from professional hosta growers, hosta companion plants, gardening books, and a hosta garden consultation by an HSNA member professional landscape designer.
Hosta Companion Plants: Many plants grow very well as companions for hosta. This year, we’ll offer a limited group of companion plants such as ferns, native wildflowers, and Asian groundcovers that have proven to be good neighbors for hosta in the garden. Companion plants add interest, texture, and color contrast and make your hosta look even better!
