Hosta of the Year

Since 1996 the members of the American Hosta Growers Association, have selected a Hosta based on outstanding merits. These Hostas have exceptionally decorative foliage, showy or fragrant flowers, and perform well throughout their hardiness zones 3-9.

The AHGA is an organization for nurseries that specializes in the growing and sale of Hostas. Its purpose is to foster interest in Hostas through marketing and educational programs, disseminate information on cultural practices and pest problems of Hostas, and help standardize Hosta nomenclature.
