'Bear Necessities' (Solberg 2019) (Sport of 'Honey Bear') Large, (18" X 40") This green sport from its much fancier parent 'Honey Bear' really has lots of character given a closer look.

'Bud Lite' (D. Beilstein and F. Rogers 2017) ('Neat Splash' x 'Rising Sun') x ('Grand Slam' x OP) Medium, (18"X28") Shiny, medium green leaves have speckled purple petioles, but it is the late blooming spectacular purple scapes and flower bracts that make this hosta so special.

'Fashionista' (M. Zilis 2011) (Sport of 'Designer Genes') Medium, (14" X 30") You can blame me for this one. The first time I saw this white-margined sport of the bright yellow 'Designer Genes', I had to have it. Curious to see how well it would grow I tested a few plants for Mark Zilis, and it passed with flying colors. It has the same bright red petioles and scapes as its parent. A riot of color in a container. $20.00
'First Blush'PP28,920 (Solberg 2015) (48/49 seedling X 'Beet Salad') Medium, (12" X 24") 'First Blush' not only has green leaves with red petioles that extend into the leaf blade but also a thin red margin around the leaf, similar but much more dramatic than its parent 'Beet Salad'. However, the most exciting thing about 'First Blush' is that in spring the leaf between the veins will start to "blush" red from the tip of the leaf down toward the base. The leaves remain red here until temperatures surpass 92 degrees, usually into June. The color should persist longer in Northern gardens. Our first red-leafed hosta. $30.00

Even the large pale lavender flowers in summer are too pretty to remove early. A new classic. $25.00
'Grape Fizz' (Solberg 2011) ('Rhapsody in Blue' x H. plantaginea) Large, (16" x 32") Glossy leaves that are very thick, slightly rippled and twisted create a mound like habit. However, it is the very attractive purple striped flowers that are also fragrant that make this hosta special. $25.00

'Humpback Whale') Large, (28" x 40") This wonderful sport of 'Humpback Whale' from Andrew Torvinen makes a very large classic form mound of rounded leaves that sport a cream margin infused with just a little green.

'Honey Pie' (Solberg 2012) ('September Sun' X H. plantaginea) Large, (18" X 40") This may have been my favorite hosta this summer. Despite all the heat, boy did it grow. The honey colored leaves pucker with age and fragrant flowers follow in late summer. It is a large hosta, a cross of 'September Sun' and H. plantaginea, having the best characteristics of both parents. Give this one a little extra sun also. $20.00
'Hovercraft' (D. & M. Beilstein 2016) (H. laevigata X op. seedling) Medium, (16" X 30") I really like this hosta even as a little liner. I like the roundness of the leaves and the nice blue color. It too is a large classic form hosta but with a little more open look as the leaves seem to float over their petioles. A fine blue from Doug Beilstein. $20.00
'How About That!' (M. Zilis 2011) (Sport of 'Sum It Up') Large, (20" x 45") An exciting streaked sport of 'Sum and Substance'. The dark, shiny green leaves feature white and yellow streaks and mottled areas. The margins are slightly rippled. $25.00

It has lots and lots of powdery white wax that softens the appearance of its sturdy cupped and puckered leaves. Near white, nicely proportioned flowers appear in late June. Another great landscape hosta from Doug Beilstein. $15.00
'Jet Stream' (D. & M. Beilstein 2013) () - (Seedling of H. yingeri OP seedling) Medium to Large, (26" X 40") Erin is a sucker for a waxy blue hosta.

This medium-sized hosta, with the help of a little morning sun, is the perfect combination of both. Yes, it is Erin's favorite. $15.00
'Kaleidochrome' (Q & Z Nursery) (seedling from Japan, possibly H. longipes and H. montana parentage) Small to Medium? (10" X 22") The most exciting hosta that I have seen in years, this beauty is streaked bright yellow and green. My narrow leaves have widened the second year but the variegation is just as good.

The leaves can be cupped up to really show off the red as it saturates the midrib sometimes to near the middle of the leaf. The cupping is a new leaf shape for this line of breeding with some puckers thrown in here and there. In mid-summer a very dark purple scape emerges with pretty purple striped flowers in a tight mass. A great breeder, too. $35.00
'Let's Twist Again' (D. Van Eechaute) (Sport of 'Patriot') Medium, (10" X 24") Danny has done it again. One of the greatest hosta sport fishermen worldwide, he has recently introduced this very curly sport of believe it or not, 'Patriot'.

'Love of My Life' (Solberg 2017) (Sport of 'Sun Shower' X 'Designer Genes' seedling) Medium, (14" X 30") Yes, I love this very special hosta. It is a cross of my 'Sun Shower' and 'Designer Genes' that sported right away from an all yellow plant to one with a green edge. Having H. longipes and H. sieboldiana genes, in many ways it is like 'June' but more robust. In addition, it also has red petioles and pinkish purple scapes. It is very sexy in the spring! $25.00

Lavender flowers in July. Beautifully variegated all summer! Yes, it really looks orange-yellow or yellow-orange, like the Crayola crayons. $20.00
'Plum Pudding' (Solberg 2011) ('One Man's Treasure' X Seedling) Medium, (16" x 24") This medium mounding hosta has unique dark green leaves with heavy substance and plum colored petioles on both sides with the plum color extending up into the leaf blade. It is great for hybridizing. $20.00
'Road Rage' (D. & M. Beilstein 2018) ('King of Spades' seedling) Medium, (15" X 27") Some may say this is an ugly hosta, but most of us think it only weird, and weird is good, in this case very good. 'Road Rage' moves 'Leapin' Lizard' a little farther up the road. It has variable green leaves that are puckered but have extra ridges that protrude upward. Yes, weird! It is medium in size and seems to grow very well. From Doug Beilstein, it is certainly a conversation starter. $25.00
'Rowan My Boat' (D. & M. Beilstein 2018) (['Butternut Hill' X 'Azure Snow' seedling] X 'Treasure Island') Medium, (14" X 31") Here is another one of Doug Beilstein's excellent very blue hostas with an unusual leaf shape. This medium to large hosta has puckered waxy blue leaves that are folded into petite kayaks. Named for his grandson I am sure you have the perfect spot for this eye catcher. $25.00
'Ruffles N Ridges' (R. & G. Fox 2018) ('Komodo Dragon' X 'Powder Blue') Huge, (36" X 72") If you think bigger is better, this beast is for you. Bob Fox is known for his huge blue seedlings and this is one of the biggest, waist high and almost seven feet across.

'Smash Hit' (M. Zilis) (Sport of 'Orange Marmalade'PP16,742) Medium, (14" X 30") This sport of 'Orange Marmalade'PP16,742 has a much wider blue-green margin than its parent indicating that it is probably tetraploid and will grow a little better. The leaf center is still bright yellow in the spring, turning orange, and then white as the season progresses. Certainly, a winner. $25.00
'Sugar Cookie' (Solberg 2019) (Sport of 'Sugar Plum') Medium, (20" X 28") This tasty holiday delight is a sport of 'Sugar Plum' found here at Green Hill Farm.

'Sugar Plum' (Solberg 2011) (Seedling X 'One Man's Treasure') Medium, (20" X 28") This is the one!!! The ultimate goal of breeding purple-petioled hostas is to produce an upright plant with rich regal purple color that runs up into the veins at the base of the leaf.

It has purple scapes as well and blooms in late August and September. It is a prolific seed producer. $20.00
'Sun Worshiper' (Solberg 2006) ('Whiskey Sour' X sibling) Medium, (12" X 28") Brought back by popular demand this sibling to 'Strawberry Banana Smoothie' is light yellow and will burn in too much sun.

'Sunny Day' (Solberg 2019) ([48/49 seedling X 'Key West'] X 48/49 seedling) Medium (14" X 24") 'Sunny Day', chasing all the clouds away this is a very happy hosta! It is also this hybridizer's fantasy. It is the result of a backcross of a 'Tom Terrific' sibling back to its purple-petioled parent. The result is a very upright medium-sized hosta with the vibrant yellow color of 'Key West' and rich purple petioles up into the leaf blade. I rushed this one to you, it is that good. $30.00
'The Mighty Quinn' (Solberg 2020) (Sport of 'Frost Giant') Large, (26" x 48") Once you see it, you must have it.

'Victory Lap' (D. & M. Beilstein 2020) () Large, (24" X 40") Another new large hosta from Doug Beilstein. You will love the way the wide white margin makes a full 360 'Victory Lap' around this hosta's very round leaves.
