The Hosta Lists represent a compilation of 100 individual lists which group hosta cultivars and species according to various characteristics. These lists have been compiled over a seventeen year period and are updated annually. Containing over 21,000 entries, this is the most complete and accurate collection of lists available. Hosta names are faithfully and carefully checked for accuracy against the The Hosta Registry and The Hostapedia: An Encyclopedia of Hostas (Mark R. Zilis, 2009). The Hosta Lists have displayed their usefulness in years past and will continue to be an invaluable and indispensable resource for gardeners everywhere.
