Bob Solberg is generally recognized as one of the most noted hybridizers and authorities on the genus Hosta in the U.S. He and his wife Nancy operate Green Hill Farm in Franklinton, North Carolina, a nursery specializing in hostas and selling both retail and wholesale. They are one of the leading introducers of new hostas, many of them hybridized by Bob. To date Bob has introduced more than 50 of his hybrids, including First Frost and Guacamole (both designated as Hostas of the Year), Fried Green Tomatoes, Fantasy Island, Toy Soldier, Orange Marmalade, Rascal, and Twist of Lime. He has served in many capacities with the American Hosta Society and has been recipient of their Distinguished Merit Award. He is a popular speaker and has written many articles on hos-tas for the Hosta Journal as well as for numer-ous other garden publications.
Bob will be bringing some hosta plants, including some miniatures, to sell. To preview what he might bring go to www.HostaHosta.com.
