HOSTA

Subject to Availability
We carry over 5,000 hosta on site.

Black Forest Nursery carries over 130 with many different sizes of plants. The selection is huge with over five thousand hostas to choose from.

One of the best and easiest to take care of perennials in existence. According to the Perennial Plants Association, hosta have become the number one selling perennial. Called "Emperors of the Shade," they remain attractive from spring until frost with handsome foliage in addition to the flowering performance.

Hosta perform best in light to full shade, however, some are very sun tolerant. They like rich organic matter worked into the soil with some moisture and some shade. Attractive spikes of flowers appear in the summer months. Some flowers are very fragrant like the Royal Standard, Guacamole, So-Sweet, Honeybells, Fragrant Blue, and Stained Glass.

They are excellent in borders, may be used massed as a groundcover alternative, and larger varieties work well as background plants for the garden. You will achieve amazing landscape results from making use of various color combinations. Hosta are available in blue, green, yellow, gold, and variegated varieties.

 

The following are "Hosta of the Year" as selected by the American Hosta Growers Association. Black Forest Nursery grows and carries all of them.

2017 HOSTA OF THE YEAR

"Brother Stefan"

Brother Stefan hosta is a large hosta tolerant of full sun, becoming brighter and brassier with more sunlight during the day. Morning sun is ideal.

Because of its extremely heavy substance, Brother Stefan is generally avoided by deer, making it even more appealing to hosta lovers.

Since it grows well in sun, the design possibilities are endless with this amazing plant. Pair Brother Stefan with hostas and other perennials in shades of blue, lime green, pink and purple. The wonderful texture makes combinations with ornamental grasses, ferns and conifers especially beautiful.

Brother Stefan has variable coloration with a generally deeper green edge over a light green or gold center. Feathering and streaking of the different shades of green reaches in toward the center of the leaf.

The wonderfully textured foliage is definitely the main attraction for this incredible hosta. Large, leathery leaves are heavily pebbled or corrugated, giving the plant a stunning look in the garden.
