Surround Yourself with Shady Characters: Modern Hosta Hybridizing, Introductions & Practical Production Tips
Hosta are a mainstay of shade gardens and regularly rank among the most popular perennials in production today, and that popularity shows no sign of going anywhere but up. If you want to know what’s new in the world of hostas or get some culture tips to boost your production, this is the webinar for you!

Leading off this webinar is Hans Hansen, Walters Gardens’ resident plant expert extraordinaire. Hans has been hybridizing and working with hostas for more than 30 years. In this presentation he’ll share his experience with the popular perennial as well as the traits he looks for when breeding and selecting new hostas.

Anchoring the presentation is avid hosta enthusiast Laura Robles, who recently transitioned from the Trials Department at Walters to her new position as Regional Product Manager. In her roles, she’s trialed various methods for forcing and finishing hostas, as well as best practices in pest and disease management.

Hosted by Chris Beytes, editor of GrowerTalks magazine.
