The world of hostas is expansive, so the American Hosta Growers Associated started the Hosta of the Year award in 1996 to help home gardeners navigate it. Each year, it showcases one variety that performs exceptionally well in gardens across the US. Our Award-Winning Hosta Collection features five varieties that have claimed the title, ideal for filling more of your shady spots with lively, low maintenance color. These easy–care perennials are beautiful under deciduous trees, along shaded walkways, in shaded borders and even as ground cover. They're a perfect complement to spring–flowering bulbs, shade perennials and ferns. Collections includes: Guacamole (2002), Patriot (1997), Earth Angel (2009), Paul's Glory (1999) and Paradigm (2007).
