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.

Here are pictures from the 2019 Cut Leaf Show so you can share our most recent show's experience.

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.

The tour schedule for 2023 is being finalized and will be published by Early April.

Plant acquisitions ...

Yes, we have the wonderful annual plant sale. But you’ll want to know that we also have these great buying opportunities:

  • plant raffles
  • silent bidding on donated plants
  • buying opportunities during tours
  • an annual auction at the April meeting. (Members: check out our blog for a recap!)
