THE MID-SOUTH HOSTA SOCIETY HOSTA TRAIL
The Mid-South Hosta Society’s Hosta Trail is a National Display Garden of the American Hosta Society. The Trail was designated as such in 2006, and the official dedication was held on April 28, 2007. The Hosta Trail was established in 1999 at the Memphis Botanic Garden in Memphis, Tennessee with donation of plants and development of a hosta bed by the Mid-South Hosta Society. With club funds and labor, the second and third beds were added in 2000 and 2001. Today, the Hosta Trail consists of seven connected beds with “Hostas From Around the Globe.” The theme is based on where species and cultivars were discovered or developed. One of the beds is devoted to miniature hostas. Another holds plaques introducing the Hosta Trail and recognizing its status as a Notional Display Garden of the American Hosta Society.
All of the hostas on the Hosta Trail are botanically labeled and adaptable to Mid-South gardens. More than 180 varieties and 400 total hostas are mixed with many shade companions in this educational exhibit on the history and culture of hosta.
