This is your choice if you want to know more about a certain hosta, find hostas with a certain background, all hostas from an originator, or search for a word in the descriptions.
As we like taking pictures, a lot of pictures are available for online searching. Search for pictures of a hosta, leaves, flowers, petioles, ...
This is your choice if a hosta name is incomplete or misspelled. Fuzzy Search will try to find alternatives for a name.
In 1999 I created an application (HostaMania) to manage the hosta information that was around on the Internet. It's main purpose was to find information back when I needed it. From the start it included descriptions, prices and pictures. Over the years more features were added, like sport trees, references, hosta links, statistics, ... making it a never ending story. As a consequence it was never ready for distribution. As I think that information should be shared and freely available, I've made the database available online for your searching. As this is a one-man project (in my free time), it is far from complete.
