started planting hostas around 20 years ago, not a lot, just a few,
Paul's Glory, Krossa Regal and Shade Fanfare. We
either picked these particular ones because of their name or their
colour, and how they looked in regards to our existing gardens.
You are welcome to come on our property and view the hosta iles at
your own risk.
we decided it would be time to have an actual Hosta garden, so over
the years we bought different hostas. Then in 2000, my husband
suggested we raise Golden Retrievers when our dog, MacIntosh
passed away. My suggestion was, why don't we raise Hostas
instead, thinking it would be a lot less effort on my part, seeing
as how I am usually the worker. So low and behold we now
have more than 700 varieties of Hostas. 55 varieties of
daylilies, and 50 varieties of perennials.
are now very hooked, we have visited several gardens, nurseries,
shows, picnics, etc. Anything to do with hostas. Our
passion now is hostas and shade perennials.
we have come in contact with in our Hosta effort has been very
enthusiastic and willing to share their expertise with us. We
must say now we are so much wiser about shade gardens than we were
20 years ago.
