For many years, it has been the practice at the AHS National Convention to have a new hosta cultivar named in honor of the event. This hosta is then given to every participant as a keepsake of the event.

Note: We need some help filling in the missing plants and conventions. If you can help us with information on hostas used to commemorate and even, please let us know. Thanks, Mr PGC
