South Western OHS

Hosta Collage

Welcome... the South Western Ontario Hosta Society (SWOHS) website. Since you are here you must have a little knowledge about hostas, or are at least curious.  SWOHS exists to promote the knowledge and interest of hostas, encourage new and improved varieites of hosta, promote the usefulness of hostas in the landscape and to identify issues related to hostas and educate our members and the public about such issues. We hope our website will guide you to your area of interest. 


About Our Society

Our mission is to promote the growth and development of Hostas by education and camaraderie. We promote knowledge and interest in hostas by encouraging member participation in hosta-related events and by providing updates and interesting articles in our newsletters and website. If you love hostas and you live, work or play in the southwestern part of the Province of Ontario, Canada, we would love to have you as a member of our society



Would you like to know what our Members Choice Hosta of the Year is? What about the Hottest Hostas to Have? Perhaps you'd like to see our suppliers list? Maybe you'd like to download a membership form or just browse our links for hosta-related sites? If you answered yes to any of the above, then the Resources page was developed for you.
