  • The Hosta Handbook by Mark Zilis (Q & Z Nursery, $34.95) describes, in detail, 278 hostas, with over 1,000 receiving mention. Most entries have a color photo. This database-like book also gives cultural requirements and a problem-solving guide.
  • The Gardener's Guide to Growing Hostas by Diana Grenfell (Timber Press, $19.95) reveals everything a gardener needs to know about growing hostas well, including how to propagate. There is a chapter on the best hostas which groups the plants into categories such as 'sun-tolerant', 'blue leaves', and 'fragrant flowers'.
