The American Hosta Society Welcomes You
The Hosta Registry is a service provided to you by The American Hosta Society (AHS) in its capacity as the International Cultivar Registration Authority for the Genus Hosta. Hosta enthusiasts, growers, hybridizers, nurserymen, and horticulturists find this growing resource an invaluable tool.
The "Search" tab takes you directly to our search utility that allows you to retrieve information from the registry database for the plant genus Hosta. This utility is designed to search by cultivar or hybridizer name, and also allows more advanced searches by leaf color, leaf characteristics or plant parentage. For this search tool, "Hybridizer" refers to the originator, nominant (namer), introducer, or registrant.
Under the "Checklists" tab you may retrieve pdf copies of all published Registration documents.
The "Registration" tab provides access to an interactive on-line cultivar registration form, a printable form, and other documentation essential to the registration process for new hosta cultivars.
I am excited to be joining the AHS family and will do my utmost to provide a timely, accurate and respectful service to the hosta community. I also welcome input from the numerous people who have background knowledge that I will never be able to duplicate. Please share with me wherever and whenever you see a gap.
