The Minnesota Hosta Society hosts an educational event held yearly to introduce the general public to the genus Hosta.
The Hosta Show is a society event, accredited by the American Hosta Society (AHS) and is open for anyone to enter. Judging is conducted by AHS judges and is open for public viewing once judging is completed.
The show offers several different divisions for exhibiting, including cut leaf entries from both classic and older varieties along with newer and trend setting introductions.
Other exhibitors will enter hostas grown in containers, along with troughs/container gardens with hostas grown in them arranged for effect. Educational displays relating to hostas and arrangements using hosta leaves for artistic design complete the entry categories.
Society members are on hand during the public viewing times to answer any questions show visitors might have about America’s most popular perennial plant, and to distribute information about the propagation and cultivation of the ”friendship plant”.
