A message from the Hosta Seed Grower's Group...

This year's combined National and Midwest Convention will again feature the Hosta Seedling Show organized by the Hosta Seed Grower's Group.  This will be the ninth year for this popular contest which is historically held at the Midwest Convention.  The competition is open to seedlings only; not sports, in nine classes:


1. Green                                                2. Margin Variegated

3. Yellow                                              4. Medio Variegated

5. Blue                                                  6. Streaked/Splashed/Misted

7. Red Petioles                                    8. Small/Mini

9. First Year seedlings.


Winners in each class are determined by popular vote, and often the choices can be very difficult with up to 150 entries over all the classes.  We went to encourage all hybridizers, seed growers and "volunteer" hunters, to take advantage of this opportunity to showcase your work.  For more details on the rules or operation for the show, please contact Rod Kuenster at, Jeff White at or Owen Purvis at Or visit the Hosta Seed Growers' Website for details. 


If you will be attending the convention, be sure to stop in and check out some interesting new seedlings, and vote for your favorites.  We'll see you in June!
