Join Josh Roggenbuck, our Regional Product Manager, to go over the Premium Hosta and Daylily program we have here at Walters Gardens.
There is no clear line to cross for a daylily to qualify as premium. This list is based off our decades of experience growing and observing the many daylily cultivars and represents our top 20. We evaluate a daylily for a variety of characteristics such as exceptional rebloom, garden vigor, and consistency of flower form. Each daylily marked premium is evaluated for a minimum of 6-10 years must be exceptional against current market standards.
Hostas are an incredibly popular perennial with lots of options to choose from. We have grown and trialed thousands of Hostas with our top 20 making this list. Premium Hostas are chosen for their vigor, leaf substance, color quality, and a variety of other factors.
We grow and ship a lot of Hostas here at Walters Gardens, and we've been doing it for over half a century. Some greenhouse and growing practices have changed, while others have stayed the same. Join Laura, our Trials Grower, as she talks about some of our experiences and recommendations for getting the best crop at retail!
