We are a group of people connected by our love of hostas, the most versatile and popular perennial plant in the country. Our members enjoy sharing their hosta knowledge and experience, and they are happy to help answer questions or guide you in the right direction of your garden interests or concerns.
Whether you are an NIHS member, a visitor or a budding "hostamaniac" feeding a passion, you've come to the right place. You will find a lot of useful information here. We invite you to explore our site and use the resources provided here. Please take a minute to answer and respond to a short questionnaire and tell us how you found our website.
Our members come primarily from the Chicago metropolitan area, but hosta lovers from anywhere are welcome. If you are not presently an NIHS member, we encourage you to consider what we have to offer. You can find our membership form located on the navigation bar, "Membership" on our website. You have a choice on how you want to pay your membership dues: by mail or on-line.
