The Hosta Show is a juried show that offers the opportunity to hosta enthusiasts in the Western Pennsylvania area to showcase their best hostas. Members as well as non-members are welcome to enter. The judges are accredited by the American Hosta Society and ribbons are awarded to the exhibits that meet specific criteria.

 

Entries for the juried show of cut leaf as well as potted hostas/arrangements will be accepted from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Friday, June 6, and from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. on the day of the show (Saturday, June 7).

 

Once the judges award the prizes the exhibit is open to the general public to enjoy.

           

The show will take place at Soergel Orchards and Garden Center. You can reach Soergel Orchards by taking I-79 north from the city and getting off at the Wexford Exit to 2573 Brandt School Rd, Wexford PA 15090.

    

The show is not only a way to recognize the efforts of local gardeners but also a way to get information, talk with Master Gardeners, buy new or recently introduced plants and best of all, meet other gardeners like yourself, and even join the organization. Members of the society as well as the judges and the exhibitors will be on hand to answer questions and share their experiences with hosta culture and gardening in general.
