Hosta Hysteria!

In the Hoosier state we have a love of all types of sports, especially the basketball and Hosta variety! The level of excitement we feel for basketball in Indiana is known as Hoosier Hysteria. 

From June 7-10, the Indianapolis Hosta Society invites you to experience HOSTA Hysteria at the 2017 American Hosta Society National Convention. 

We will share our passion for the genus Hosta with you during four days of amazing gardens; socializing; special surprises, fun and education; plus Hoosier-sized helpings of food and hospitality.

Hop on air-conditioned coach buses to tour ten beautiful gardens, including a historic estate garden, a Hoosier hybridizer’s amazing paradise and a collector's garden filled with specimen Hosta and sculptures. Learn about “The Layered Garden”, “Hellebores”, and more from three esteemed speakers.

To get the excitement started we are offering three wonderful gardens on Wednesday that you can tour on your own. Or join us for a pre-convention day trip to southern Indiana to experience what has been called the eighth wonder of the world, the historic West Baden Springs Hotel and gardens.

Save the date, June 7-10, 2017; we can’t wait to see you here in Indy to celebrate and share in Hosta Hysteria.
