    A great book to all who feel overwhelmed by the vast selection of hostas on the market today.

    This is the most wonderful book of all the information one needs in order to select whatever type of Hosta that one desires. I have grown Hostas, but only a limited number. Now through knowledge from this book, I am increasing my collection with total enjoyment and continue to read and research in this book almost daily. I had checked out a copy of this book from the public library and kept renewing it until I used up my entitled 5 renewals so decided it was time to purchase a copy for myself. If you garden in the shade and like a lot of variety in a plant that is relatively easy to grow and maintain, this is a great book for you to own.

    Love this book. I'm a newbie to hostas but in the last year have really begun to appreciate their beauty and versatility. This book has taught me everything I've needed to know to make some amazing hosta beds. I now have over 60 different varieties and love each one. This book has also helped me identify several of the varieties I already had. I've spent many hours pouring over the beautiful pictures in this book. My friends now joke about me being the "hosta guru" and come to me with their hosta questions. This book has taught me most of what I know.

    As book writers go on into the future and more studies are down the work on Hosta's is getting rather blurred….though good photos and good information, this author arranged the book by leaf color and so you have to know what you're looking for in order to find it..and the author disputes alot of others information on species and cultivars….adding to the confusion

    It's a very informative book with good details on the growing of Hostas, a plant of which I have recently become enamoured. The book also provides photos and integral specifics as to eventual size, rate of growth, and sun/shade preferences. Sadly, where I live, I have little hope

    Great book. I feel confident now to transplant my hundreds of hostas that are growing on the side of my house to the front of the house without damaging them. Many, colorful, well taken photographs of different kinds of hostas, too. Now I know which kind I have. lol.
