Georgia Hosta Society

bringing enthusiasts together since 1984

Are you partial to hostas? So are we!

We're the Georgia Hosta Society. Welcome! The Georgia Hosta Society brings together hosta enthusiasts ranging from beginners to veterans; patio gardeners to those with an acre or more of wooded landscape; amateur hybridizers to professional growers. We hope you'll consider joining us in the rewarding and delightful work of selecting and nurturing these fascinating and beautiful plants in our local environment.

November 13, 2021  --  IN PERSON MEETING!!!!

General Meeting - Deen Day Sanders Garden House 

Deen Day Sanders Garden House, 10777 Bell Road, Duluth, GA 30097

Yeah! We will have another live meeting on Saturday, November 13th at the Deen Day Sanders Garden House. Please note that the start time for the business meeting will be earlier, 11:00 AM, due to the time needed to appoint our new officers for the 2022-2023 term prior to lunch. We are also allowing time for a short Hosta ID period. If you have a hosta whose name has been lost, bring your plant or some leaves to the meeting.

After lunch we will have our program which will feature Putting Hosta Diseases into Proper Perspective and Hosta Labeling Ideas.

This meeting will also feature a silent auction.

For everyone's safety, we ask that you wear masks at the meeting. We also hope that you will be vaccinated for COVID-19 or be tested before the meeting. There will be only 4 chairs per table to help insure proper distancing. Let's plan to have fun but be safe at the same time! Also, don't forget to bring your name tags. If you do not have one, please contact Pat Brussack to have one made.

Showtime 2020!

The Georgia Hosta Society’s 30th Annual Hosta Show has been cancelled due to the social distancing restrictions.  We will miss you all and hope to see you next year.  

Here are pictures from the 2019 Cut Leaf Show so you can share in last year's experience.

Note to GHS Members: A full color photo essay on the 2019 show will be in the September issue of Georgia Hosta Notes.

Tours ...

Opening garden gates for our members enriches and enhances the hosta-growing experience as much as anything else the Society does. Exploring a garden with like-minded folks can be inspiring, can reveal solutions to problems, and can help avoid gardening pitfalls.
