Hostas come in a wide range of sizes and as you go through our listing you will see a letter in parenthesis after the name which denotes the height of the plant…the ledger below will help to convert this to inches.
Mack the Knife
[S] (Dishon) Great little hosta with very thick green leaves that have an unusual “orange” colored margin The elongated leaves are slightly twisted and exhibit a rippled edge. Topped with lavender flowers in July
**Magic Fire PP17524
[L] (Jan van den Top) Thick, deep green leaves with a wide yellow border that streaks toward the center. The leaves twist and fold forming a dense clump topped with lavender flowers in midsummer
[L] (DeVroomen) A sport of H. ‘Sagae’ (very similar to H. ‘Liberty’)...shorter than it’s parent with a border that is 2-3 times wider. Leaves are dark green with a creamy-yellow border that changes to cream and topped with lavender flowers
[M] (Scheer) Reaches into a new bag of tricks! Purple petioles hold thick dark green leaves with white backs that twist and turn in every direction, some of them almost create a complete corkscrew.
[M] (Fransen) The all yellow-gold sport of H. ’Mango Tango’...lavender flowers
[M] (Kinman) Unique sport from H. ‘Dance with Me’...wide green border surrounds a narrow yellow center that has an irregular shape. Vigorous grower topped with lavender flowers, can be considered the reverse of H. ‘Stitch in Time’
[L] (Petryszyn) From Olga…a cross between H. ‘Elatior’ and H. ‘Christmas Tree’ and combines the best of both! Large heart-shaped leaves are dark green framed by a white border. Topped with lavender flowers

Marmalade on Toast
[L] (Fransen) Sport from H. ‘Orange Marmalade’ with heart-shaped blue leaves that display gentle wavy margins and moderate corrugation. Fast grower that fills out nicely in a short time. Lavender flowers
[S] (Terpening) Smaller yellow hosta with lance shaped leaves that forms a beautiful clump that grows well and shows bright yellow color with more sun. ’Marrakech’ holds it’s best surprise for midsummer when it sprouts a pink flower scape with pinkish buds opening to very light lavender flowers
[S/M] (Vaughn) A sturdy hosta that is great to look upon…leathery yellow leaves are rounded, cupped and heavily puckered. Violet flowers on 18” scapes top the small but elegant clump
[M] (Meyer) This one will brighten up a dark spot...rounded chartreuse leaves with lots of corrugation brighten to a rich gold color as the season progresses. Lavender flowers compliment the vigorous clump in midsummer
[S] (Strandberg) Sport from H. ‘Whirlwind’...the wavy leaf has a limey-yellow center with prominent veins framed by a dark green irregular border. Clump stays smaller and the leaves twist outward and upward. Lavender flowers

Midnight at the Oasis
[M] (Naylor Creek Nursery) This sport from H. ‘Pathfinder’ begins much like its parent with a thick white centered leaf surrounded by a dark green border. Then, as the season progresses (especially if its a warm one), the white center develops flecks and becomes darker and darker. In cooler climates the center will stay whiter until late summer
[S] (Dean) Thick, glossy dark green leaves have an almost “plastic” substance...they are wavy and twisted forming a dense, compact, low mound. Burgundy speckled scapes hold dark lavender flowers in September. This little guy is very vigorous and loves the sun

[M/L] (Monty Carlson) Elegant introduction from Monty Carlson...large heart-shaped green leaves have great substance and are framed with a wide and variable creamy-white border with lots of ruffles.

[M] (D&J Ward) Stunning sport from H. ’Great Lakes Gold’...gold leaves have a wavy medium green border that really makes them stand out. Good substance and lots of corrugation. Dense clump is topped with lavender flowers
[M] (Heemskerk) This is NOT a member of the mouse family...its actually a sport from ‘Sunset Grooves’. Very round and very thick green leaves that resemble a “mouse ears” but are much larger. Lavender flowers
[M] (Dean) (originally named ‘Tupelo Honey’) This medium-sized clump forms an eye-catching mound of puckered leaves that emerge chartreuse-yellow with an irregular and creamy-white feathered border. A second flush of leaves appears bright yellow with a white edge above the first creating a two-toned layered appearance. Lavender flowers
[M/L] (Johnson) Grey-green leaves turn shiny as the season progresses...great substance and beautiful fragrant pale lavender flowers
[M] (D&J Ward) Selected seedling from H. ‘Dorothy Benedict’...blue-green leaves are framed with a gold border...great substance and good corrugation make this a very desirable hosta
[S] (Zumbar) This is the reverse variegated sport of H. ‘Dress Blues’…upright, narrow leaves have a wide creamy-white center with a blue border. Topped with pale lavender flowers in early summer
[M] (Heemskerk) A reverse variegated sport of H. ’Anne’...wide dark green borders surround a flared light yellow center with the leaf being divided into equal thirds. Vigorous grower with lavender flowers
[M] (Van Eechaute) A smaller sport of H. ’Kiwi Full Monty’ from Belgium with different colors and leaf shape . Wavy dark green leaves have a lighter green center and the “family” white line separating the two greens. The center changes colors slightly later and pale lavender flowers appear....(limited)

[L] (Hans Hansen) Hybrid of kikutii forms a low spreading mound of blue leaves with a creamy-yellow margin…leaves have a silvery-white back. Topped with pale lavender flowers in August

[M] (Hall) From Great Britain…beautiful undulating golden-yellow leaves have an intriguing edge that is quite wavy and the leaf tips are long and elegant. Plant makes a dense mound topped with lilac flowers in June
[M] (Tower) Glowing yellow leaves are heart-shaped and very shiny...good substance. Leaf margins are wavy and do fade to chartreuse later. The clump is topped with lavender flowers
[M] (Hansen) Cascading, wedge-shaped blue-green leaves with a wonderful rippled margin are topped with lavender flowers in August on arching scapes
[L] (Brincka/Petryszyn) Large heart-shaped gray-green leaves stand upright and arch outward…each leaf has a dramatically rippled margin and clump is topped with violet flowers.
Nickie Sue Axmear
[VL] (Bob Axmear) This great seedling comes from Bob Axmear of Hosta Library fame...he named the plant after his oldest daughter and feels its one of his best. Very large heart-shaped green leaves start out with a yellow “feathery” border that turns creamy-white by the end of the season. Huge clump has an excellent growth rate and lavender flowers
[M] (Benedict) Stable form of H. ‘Dorothy Benedict’ with blue-green leaves framed by a creamy-yellow border…pale lavender flowers and a vigorous grower
[M] (Savory) Bright yellow-gold leaves are surrounded by a narrow green border and the contrast is beautiful. Good substance and vigor make a clump that will be topped with lavender flowers

[M] (Elslager) Clump of green leaves framed with a creamy-yellow to white border that shows nice rippling. Vigorous grower topped with lavender flowers in August
[S/M] (Andersen) One of those sports from H. ‘Striptease’ parentage and came out of the tissue culture production of H. ’Kiwi Full Monty’. A creamy-white border frames the blue-green leaf center and the typical ’Striptease’ thin white line runs between the two. Do believe the right location will make a big difference with this plant....(limited)
[L] (Chopko) Blue-green leaves change to green and have a gold border. Good substance on a dense clump and that be topped with pale lavender flowers
[S/M] (Dean) Vase-shaped clump with powder-blue on both the top and bottom of the foliage blends the best of ‘Frosted Dimples’ and ‘Salute’. Leaves hold their color until October’s frost in Minnesota. Near-white flowers in August.
