I have arranged all of the Hostas we grow into an ordered list so that you can compare them side by side. For want of a better scheme, I have grouped them by size and then by colour form within that. There are some very helpful cultural notes that have been written by my good friend and Hosta aficionado,David Byfield. You can find these notes at the end of the listing.
