National and Regional Societies

American Hosta Society

The American Hosta Society (AHS) is a not-for-profit organization. The AHS is organized exclusively for educational and scientific purposes, and especially to promote, encourage, and foster the development of the genus Hosta and public interest therein. These purposes are expressly limited so that the AHS qualifies as an exempt organization under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 or the corresponding provision of any future U.S Internal Revenue Law.

The publications alone are worth the annual dues. Visit the AHS website for the latest membership options.


Midwest Regional Hosta Society

The Midwest Regional Hosta Society includes both Kansas and Missouri and publishes two newsletters a year. They hold an annual Summer Convention and a Winter Scientific Meeting.  Dues are $10 per year payable to MRHS.  Contact Barb for more information.
