What are Bare Root Hostas?
Bare root Hostas are living plants dug fresh each week. The foliage is left intact and all soil is washed from the roots to comply with agricultural regulations. Compared to pots, the lighter weight of bare root plants make it feasible to ship them while still retaining most of the plant's root structure for health. Use the lists or the search found here to select bare root Hostas for Sunshine Hollow to ship to your home. We also have over 200 varieties of potted Hostas for purchase onsite at the Gardens.
Hosta Selection

Please heed these warnings about selecting Hostas for your area:


  • For fall planting in areas Hosta can be grown, we recommend delivery at least eight weeks prior to freezing weather to give roots time to establish themselves. We also recommend heavy mulching of the plants to prevent frost heaving and crown damage.

Hot Climates:

  • We donít recommend growing Hosta in the deep south. Hosta require a definite period of dormancy created by below freezing temperatures. If this is not the case where you live, Hosta will probably not survive there. Even in the lower southern latitudes Hosta will not perform as well as in cooler climates.
  • We do not recommend Hosta for areas like the Deep South, Desert Southwest, Southern California, etc.

Cold Climates:

  • Northern areas such as New England should wait until all frost is gone before receiving bare root plants.
