Heartland Hosta & Shade Plant SocietyHeartland Hosta and Shade Plant Society

 

Heartland Hosta Shade Plant Society (HHSPS) is dedicated to promoting a greater interest in hostas and educating members (and the public) about the care and cultivation of hostas and shade plants. Our members come from all across the Metropolitan Kansas City area.

The HHSPS hosts a Spring and Fall meeting with knowledgeable speakers which provides a time place for socializing and sharing with fellow hosta-holics. Other exciting activities include our annual plant sale in early May and the 'members-only' garden party occurs each June.  This garden party is held at one of our member's lovely gardens and is a definite incentive for membership in the HHSPS.

At the plant sale, HHSPS features new and exciting varieties of hosta for sale as well as older favorites. We also offer companion plants suitable for shade gardens.  Proceeds from our plant sale are used to fund donations to organizations such as: Powell Gardens, Ronald McDonald House, Operation Breakthrough and the American Hosta Society for their research into Hosta VirusX and foliar nematodes. Proceeds are also used to host the exceptional speakers we have at our Spring and Fall meetings.
