The Gardener's Wish List

Hard to find  Listing

If you see any of these in your lifetime you probably should make a note some where that you've seen a Hosta that is currently considered to be rarely found or even rarely publicly displayed.  These plants are on my Wish List so this is not just extra errata.


  1. Archangel Micheal (smallest known hosta at 2 inches or less in diameter; hosta privately held)
  2. Country Dreaming (probably the bluest hosta; currently a fundraising plant by hybridizers)
  3. Grass (suspecting this name was changed for obvious reasons)
  4. Gunther's Prize (European release only?)
  5. Kifukurin Ko Mama (considered rare; sometimes listed at Fukurin Ko Mama)
  6. Nakafu (longissima 'Nakafu'?) (one of the longer less than one inch wide leafed hosta at about 10 inches in length)
  7. Northern Crow (hosta privately held by website owner; provisionally named)
  8. Oil on Canvas (probably the greatest extreme of white/beige leaves with splotches of green on the leaves)
  9. Pistol (European release only?)
  10. Sol (European release only?)
  11. St. Bernadette (Still in hybridization; photos suggest this may be the first [sky] BLUE flowered hosta)



Reference list only

It is my understanding that the following Hosta are considered extinct by the hosta community, and will never again be found.

  1. Pancakes (Frances Williams; 1948)
